Patients are no longer passive research subjects, but rather being integrated into the research process from the start. Patient advocates help with such integrations, from protocol design through to clinical trial findings. It has been proven that designing clinical trials to meet the patient needs facilitates better patient adherence and reduces patient drop out rates.
But more importantly, advocating for a patient is advocating for a human being, not a test subject. As clinical research evolves more emphasis has been placed on patient experience, rather than just data points.
