  • Patient engagement programs

    Understanding patients to facilitate behavioural change

    The healthcare environment is more open and transparent than it has ever been. More and more patients are taking the initiative and utilizing the wealth of accessible information that digital offers to self-diagnose, question experts, seek opinions, engage in conversations, and collaborate and empathize with other patients. In short, they are becoming a more powerful influencer within the healthcare ecosystem.

    At Ashfield Healthcare Communications we believe that is a good thing. Partnerships, collaborations, co-creation and a shared desire to improve patient lives is an ethos shared by pharma companies, healthcare professionals and patients. Where we fit in is in helping that process along; facilitating discussions, understanding patients’ needs and ensuring communications and activities are planned and delivered.

    Our Patient Engagement team utilizes the immense scientific resource available at Ashfield and combines that with robust insights and evidence-based strategy to ensure that our clients are engaging in the right way, at the right time with the right people.

  • Medical Education

    Insight-driven programmes that improve patient care

    We are passionate about collaborating with you to support healthcare professionals in achieving the best possible outcomes for patients. We strive for excellence in all aspects of medical education.

    Our agencies ensure that each initiative they undertake is:

    Accurate and credible
    Our specialist teams offer industry-leading insights across a vast range of therapeutic areas. Furthermore, we’ve built strong relationships with leading scientific experts, including professional bodies, to ensure that knowledge shared is unbiased, trustworthy and contributes to all aspects of professional development.

    Accessible and engaging
    In their hectic schedules, healthcare professionals and patients need a variety of access points to education. As such, be it traditional classroom-based sessions or on-demand webcasts on multiple devices, we have the skills and resources to deliver. Whichever format we use, we work hard to ensure the information is presented in a stimulating way that engages audiences and maximises knowledge retention.

    Able to improve patient care
    For us, delivery is only the first half of a project. We also aim to understand what delegates have learned, and the impact the programme has had on them. Only by doing this do we build a collaborative partnership that enhances the clinical impact of your initiatives.

  • Scientific PR

    Bringing the stories behind the science to life

    We understand the need to communicate the stories that often lie hidden within complex clinical or technical data, in order to educate, inform and engage audiences. We do this by:

    Identifying what matters to our audiences

    Our PR specialists combine deep scientific knowledge and understanding with communications expertise which allows them to cut through data, product or disease facts and identify what really matters to different audiences. Understanding our audiences and knowing what matters to them allows for insight-led, targeted communications programmes which result in genuine engagement on topics important to our clients.

    Communicating stories, not just facts

    Through targeted story-telling we can bring to life the impact of our clients’ medicines and healthcare strategies on patients’ lives and clinical practice. We do this by ‘unwrapping’ data and interpreting it in ways that make the story it’s telling easily accessible and memorable, while still ensuring the science is at the heart of the stories we tell.

    Knowing which communications channels to use, and when

    Our scientific PR programmes are part of integrated, pharma brand-marketing strategies and are designed to reach audiences through multiple communications channels, including traditional medical and consumer media (print, broadcast, radio, digital, video), social media (including blogs, Twitter, content hubs), thought leaders (including healthcare professionals, patient/consumer groups) and employees.

    Measuring impact

    The benefits of scientific PR can be significant; we understand the need to make these benefits tangible and demonstrate return on investment for our clients. We work with clients to understand the metrics most meaningful to them and set appropriate targets for communications initiatives before they commence.
