Our final Masterclass of 2018 will be held in the Tony Ryan Academy on Thursday 29th November.  This will be a full day masterclass entitled: 

“Turning the focus from Product Lifecycle to Patient Pathway”

Exploring the Patient Pathway from Diagnosis to Compliance

Understanding the key touchpoints, influences and drivers along a patient’s pathway from diagnosis to taking a medication is absolutely critical to successfully launching new products and driving sales of existing brands.
This masterclass will explore in-depth how research can help to map the many different pathways patients take from their initial diagnosis through to being prescribed medication, taking that medication and enjoying better quality of life. We will also explore how to use data and research insights effectively to maximise marketing spend.

This will be a highly-interactive, practical masterclass with participants completing hands-on assignments.  They will leave equipped with tools that can be applied immediately in their own environments. 

The masterclass will also include a presentation on the double award winning “Dinner with Dementia” campaign which was developed in partnership between Nutricia Medical, The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland and Ipsos MRBI.   The project sought to better understand how dementia can affect nutrition and diet, in order to develop communication materials to provide guidance and advice, created by people with dementia, for people with dementia.   The campaign won Research Excellence Awards in 2017 from the Marketing Society and was the overall Grand Prix winner. 

The masterclass will be a blend of lectures led by subject-matter experts, practical assignments undertaken by attendees and examining awarding winning case-studies.

This masterclass will be relevant to: 
Marketing Managers/Directors, Product Managers, Brand Managers, Commercial Managers, anyone involved in data analytics, the creation in marketing campaigns or medical programmes.
