Patient Group Skills Programme

Developing Communication Materials for Rare Disease Stakeholders

Founded in 2008, Costello Medical provides scientific support to the healthcare industry in the analysis, interpretation and communication of clinical and health economic data. Alongside supporting pharmaceutical and MedTech companies, we provide our services and offer support to non-profit organisations on a pro bono basis.

This year Costello Medical is pleased to be running a programme for eight patient organisations and charities that support rare disease patients and families. This programme will help organisations that want to learn how to develop materials to communicate with patients, funders, clinicians and other stakeholders in the rare disease community.

The programme is now fully subscribed
