The PATIENTS program at the University of Maryland has produced a brief video on the role of Stakeholder Advisory Boards. Stakeholders are anyone who cares about the outcomes of a clinical study to inform healthcare decisions. The board’s purpose is to advise the study team during the course of a trial to help ensure the results are relevant and important to all stakeholders.
A Stakeholder Advisory Board comprises a diverse and balanced collection of individuals and organizations from the following groups:
- Patients, caregivers, and advocacy organizations
- Clinicians, nursing staff, specialists, and healthcare system administrators
- Academic investigators and other researchers
- Public and private healthcare payers
- Policy and guideline organizations
- Industry sponsors and therapeutic product developers
The 4-minute video features Ellen Tambor, MA, Senior Research Manager at the Center for Medical Technology Policy and a member of the Collaboratory’s Stakeholder Engagement Core working group.
