Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TORONTO - Sep 11, 2018 - The side effects and burden of anticoagulant treatments may contribute to poor compliance and consequently to treatment failure. The Perception of Anticoagulant Treatment Questionnaire (PACT-Q) was developed to help assess patientsâ€™ needs and their perceptions of anticoagulant treatment. The PACT-Q is a valid and reliable instrument that assesses patientsâ€™ expectations and satisfaction regarding their anticoagulant treatment, as well as their opinion about their treatmentsâ€™ convenience of use.
Its two-part structure â€“ assessment of expectations at baseline in the first part, and of convenience, burden and treatment satisfaction in the second â€“ displays good and stable psychometric properties. These results are not sufficient to recommend the use of satisfaction as a primary endpoint in clinical trials; further validation work is needed to support the interpretation of PACT-Q dimension scores. However, this first validation makes the PACT-Q an appropriate measure for use in clinical and pharmacoepidemiological research, as well as in real-life studies.
Join this live webinar on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, at 10 a.m. EDT (3 p.m. BST/UK) to learn more about how this questionnaire can be applied in clinical research.
This presentation will feature Aude Roborel de Climens, Ph.D., PRO Lead, Health Economics & Outcomes Research (HEOR) at Sanofi; Paulo Carita, Modeling HEAD, Global HEVA (Health Economics & Value Assessment) at Sanofi; Alexia Marrel, BA, Associate Director of PRO and ClinROs – HEOR & Strategic Market Access, Patient-Centered Outcomes at Mapi; and Marie Dulac Trimoreau, Author Relations Specialist, Author Collaboration Unit at Mapi Research Trust.
