For Patients

About the Patient Affairs Staff

The FDA Patient Affairs Staff works to improve, expand and sustain communication with patients and their community.  We help educate patients, patient advocates, and their healthcare professionals about medical product regulations and we continue to look at ways to involve patients more effectively in regulatory decisions related to medical product safety and approval.

FDA continues to provide resources that help patients and consumers find the information they need to support their own health care, whether they want to learn more about clinical trials and where to find studies or when accessing investigational products outside of trials might be appropriate.
