The FDA has been encouraging patient-focused drug development and, as part of that, incorporating patients into the development of clinical outcomes assessments (COAs) to ensure that they are meaningful to patients and appropriate to measure treatment benefit.

Outcome assessments used in clinical trials need to fit the needs of multiple stakeholders; it is beneficial to engage with multiple stakeholders throughout the development/modification of COAs.

Panelists will discuss the need for patient-centred measures to capture a clinically meaningful effect of an intervention in the context of early Parkinson's disease.

Learning Objectives

Describe how to better incorporate patient viewpoints into both legacy clinical outcome assessment (COA) measures and novel instruments (with the case of early Parkinson's disease as illustration); Define more informed COA strategies based on FDA's current thinking and approach; Discuss the state FDA’s PFDD program.
