Take a few minutes to learn more about the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s Patient Network, which is a comprehensive program that works to expand and sustain communication with patients and their community. It also helps educate patients, patient advocates, and their healthcare professionals about medical product regulations and we continue to look at ways to involve patients more effectively in regulatory decisions related to medical product safety and approval.
You can also visit the FDA’s Office of Health and Constituent Affairs Patient Network Newsletter webpage to peruse their bi-weekly newsletter to patients, caregivers, patient advocates and other healthcare professionals, which is intended to inform individuals of FDA-related information on a variety of topics including:
• new product approvals
• safety warnings
• notices of upcoming public meetings
• proposed regulatory guidances
• opportunities to comment
• pet health
• other information of interest
