Dedicated to meeting the needs of people with diabetes
At Profil Germany, we believe that the experiences and needs of people with diabetes should be taken into account when planning directions for research. We have benefitted greatly by listening to patients who have repeatedly participated in our studies and intend to intensify our commitment to patient-initiated research.
We have several projects planned that will invite patient feedback on research topics and results, including a clinical trial with patients involved at all stages: planning, conduct, data analysis and publication. The feedback from these projects will support our efforts to improve our research activities and obtain results that are relevant to both our clients and people with diabetes.
Further reading on patient-initiated research
In a recent survey, we asked people with diabetes about research topics of relevance to them and compared the results with the current spectrum of research activities. There was a substantial discrepancy between patients’ wishes and ongoing or planned research. Profil works to address this discrepancy in the future by considering patients' wishes in planning trial design.
