Future Health: Who is the expert? Professional training vs. Wikipedia?

As self-diagnosis has become a national sport, the dialogue in the consultation room has changed - and so has the context of the pharmaceutical industry. What does this change mean for the balance of power between doctor and patient? And what opportunities and challenges does it present for the pharmaceutical industry? For example, is Real World Evidence becoming the "new expert"?

The industry is already playing a role in communicating to patients about therapeutic areas, which also affects the doctor-patient relationship – is this a challenge or a help for the doctor/patient?

At this Life Science Morning Briefing, we'll cover the topic from four perspectives thorough today's expert speakers:

  • The patient's perspective: Søren Gray Worsøe Lauersen, Chief Consultant, Danish Cancer Society

  • The doctor's perspective: Henrik Villadsen, Managing Director,

  • The RWE perspective: Lisbeth Nielsen, Director, Danish Health Data Authority

  • The pharmaceutical industry perspective: Susan Lysdal, Patient Journey and Solutions Lead, Novartis

(This Life Science Morning Briefing is in English)
