Background: Watching these webinars on FDA and Patient-Focused Drug Development in advance may be helpful in preparing for the meeting.

The meeting format maximizes patient participation. For each discussion topic, a small panel of patients or caretakers will prove brief comments to start the dialogue. The panel comments will be followed by a facilitated discussion with other patients and patient representatives in the audience. Patients or caregivers who would like to be considered to be on the opening panel can indicate that as part of registration. They will be asked to send a short summary of their responses to the discussion questions (posted on our registration site) to PatientFocused@fda.hhs.gov.
