Patient Advocacy and Engagement: Internal Readiness

Each company has different needs to ensure its internal team structure and functions are ready to efficiently and effectively engage advocates, patients and care partners to offer the most value to internal teams engaged in developing new products. VOZ Advisors has years of experience building strong advocacy and patient engagement initiatives. Our efforts include advocacy training, internal development of advocacy structures, strategic advocacy planning, cross-functional planning, internal alignment workshops, tactical action plans, policies and procedures, as well as hands-on, on-site support.

Our experience allows us to share different models, explain what has worked and offer both high level strategic guidance and tactical services to shape a best in class program.
