Are you affected by a serious chronic disease, like type 2 diabetes, obesity, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) or atherosclerosis? Have you recently participated in a clinical trial?
We would like to hear more about your clinical trial participation experience. We are preparing several workshops to better understand the challenges of incorporating a clinical trial into daily life so we can improve the design of clinical trials with people like you in mind.
Novo Nordisk engages directly with people who have serious chronic diseases and their families through our Disease Experience Expert Panels (DEEPs). By sharing their experiences, DEEP members contribute valuable insights and practical knowledge that enable us to develop better medicines and promote better health outcomes.
You may be eligible to participate if:
We need you because you know best!
You can share practical knowledge, daily routines and the challenges of living with and managing a chronic disease. Your contribution will help us to set meaningful goals for young trial participants.
Once you have applied for the project (see below), we will ask you to
complete a short survey. We will then select potential families to
participate in the workshop and schedule a call with participants to
discuss the workshop details. If you are selected, you will be invited
to participate in some SKYPE workshops. You may also be invited to
attend workshops in person in Copenhagen, Denmark. The agenda and the
topics to be covered will be agreed with you in advance.
Your participation will be compensated, and Novo Nordisk will cover your expenses, travel and accommodation.
Our main goal will be to listen to your story. Our clinical trial team members may also ask you some questions to learn more about your opinions, daily challenges, hopes and future plans. For example:
- How do you feel about the disease?
- What are your main daily challenges related to the disease?
- What kind of support do you get now?
- What kind of support would you find useful?
We need a range of perspectives to ensure our clinical trials are as effective and as relevant for patients as possible. By sharing your knowledge and experience you can make a real difference and help to change patients’ lives.
