PATIENTS ON TRIAL
Session Chair:
Janet Davies, Programme Chair, Director, International Medical Information and Medical Affairs Project Management, Gilead Sciences, UK

This session will explore human rights in the context of patients and healthcare. We will discuss what rights patients have in relation to medicines – do they just have the right to expect to be treated with effective medicines and to be protected from harm? Or do patients also have the right to expect access to information and to modern, innovative medicines? A panel of expert speakers will discuss how patient-centred healthcare is affecting patients’ rights.

Key-note speakers invited.
