I Hate Cancer, Part Two

By Bonnie A. Brescia on Wed, Feb 4, 2015 | 2 min read

Today is World Cancer Day. Eighteen months ago, my dear friend Sarah Montgomery died of colon cancer and I posted the original “I Hate Cancer” blog. I still miss Sarah very much, but she was only one of many people I mentioned in that post. Since then, my friend died from her metastatic brain cancer, my aunt died from adenocarcinoma, and every one of my friends then in treatment for breast cancer has survived and is doing very well. One even gave birth to her third child.

By BBK Worldwide on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 | 2 min read

We’re pleased to announce the availability of our latest eBook: Are You Patient-Centric? Organizations with a patient-centric approach will outperform and maintain a competitive advantage over those who are solely focused on their bottom line. It’s really that simple. We know this to be true because it has been our experience for more than thirty years – and “The Patients to Find the Cure” is much more than our company’s tagline. Patients are at the center of everything we do.

And that’s why we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about the range of ways our industry is working to redefine itself around patient needs, wants, insights and knowledge.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation & The Diabetes Collective to Weigh in on Patient Centricity and Clinical Research

By BBK Worldwide on Tue, Oct 7, 2014 | 5 min read

If you’re not putting your patients first, someone else will. Patient-centricity is no longer a nice-to-have; it is a critical component of any study’s success. Thoughtful and effective patient engagement and retention strategies should be employed throughout the entire clinical trial process – and the patient’s contribution to clinical research and the advancement of treatment options cannot be underestimated. Regardless of the inherent complexities of study management, clinical trial sponsors have an obligation to ensure patients have the best clinical trial experience possible.
