Discover the tools to support fair remuneration of the patient community for interactions with the pharmaceutical industry

Participate now in the public consultation for globally standardized Activity & Expertise Frameworks. The next step for fair remuneration in patient engagement.

About the project

Remuneration of the patient community continues to be a tension point, reducing the ability of both parties to have meaningful and efficient interactions, leading to a call to action for global consistency and transparency.

PFMD membership and contributors are participating in a comprehensive co-creation effort involving key stakeholders and decision-makers to harmonize previous collaborative work and establish a trusted process for fair remuneration of the patient community for interacting with the pharmaceutical industry through patient engagement activities.
