FDA Will Keep Listening To Patient-Engagement Experts

Executive Summary

The US agency says in a 6 January Federal Register notice that it’s keeping its Patient Engagement Advisory Committee in place through October 2021 so it can gather more patient feedback that will come in handy when regulatory decisions need to be made. The committee, formed after the agency made a cultural shift to consider patient input on the types of products it allows on the market, was supposed to expire October 2019.
