Developing the Panel with Your Support
As a HOPA member, your support is instrumental in determining the quality of the Patient Advisory Panel. That is why we're asking you to review your list of patients, determine if you know individuals that meet the panel criteria, and ask them to apply for the Panel.
We’ve Made Reaching Out to Potential Panelists Easy!
To help guide your conversation, the POC has developed a Patient Advisory Panel Flyer to share with your patient contacts. As a quick guide, it provides an overview of:
- what's being asked of panelists in terms of sharing their individual story;
- the value of individual participation and the value of the panel's collective knowledge;
- the time commitment required

Tip: To mitigate any concerns of a long application process, please inform your patient there are less than 10 questions. (One way to encourage their participation is to show them a copy of the application.)
Applications are due March 5, 2021
We appreciate your support! Please reach out to your patient contacts soon, in order to provide them ample time to submit their application.
