How do you ensure a patient-centric approach in your daily work?
I listen to my team and I listen to our healthcare professionals (HCPs). In order to be patient centric we must understand our HCPs’ world, and the challenges they face daily. In addition, it’s crucial to understand our HCPs’ goals for their patients, and also their personal drivers. We need to care deeply about patients to be patient centric and I truly believe at Daiichi Sankyo we do. Not many companies have NHS Collaboration Managers who support joint working projects to improve patient outcomes.
