"Get Informed. Get Involved. Help FDA Help Patients Have a Bigger Voice.

FDA opens new line of communication with patients...

"Get Informed. Get Involved. Help FDA Help Patients Have a Bigger Voice.  That's the slogan of a new FDA web site. The FDA Patient Network has been designed from the ground up to focus entirely on patients.

The FDA Patient Network web site is an interactive tool for educating patients, patient advocates, and consumers on how their medications - both prescription and over-the-counter -and medical devices move from the realm of idea to the realm of the marketplace. It brings together, in one place, information that is important to patients, making it easier for them to find what they are looking for and to understand the significance of their findings.

This web site will open new channels of communication with the public, such as live chats with senior agency officials. It will help patients and consumers better understand the process for determining whether medical products are safe and effective and encourage them to contribute their ideas and concerns about the development and regulation of these products".

This is your opportunity to let your voice be heard, and to educate yourself.
