Patient Advisory Group (PAG) Launched
As it is important that patients have a voice at the table about the DB-i website, we have launched a PAG. Our PAG members provide their unique perspective on website content needs, understandability, and user experience. Notably, each PAG member contacted us after visiting the website as they were impressed with the depth and breadth of content. The PAG has been instrumental in content review as part of our health literacy project. Please see our Press Release about this DB-i initiative.
This ongoing effort will ensure that health professionals can feel confident about the relevancy and useability of the DB-i website as an educational resource for patients.
