Thank you so much for visiting UPL.org.

We are thrilled that you have taken the time to explore the site and we hope you’ve had a chance to engage with the tools, videos, and information.

No matter what brought you here to UPL.org, we can all agree — communicating complex topics to patients can be challenging! A few years ago, at Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS), we took a good look at how we were communicating to patients and challenged ourselves to do better.

We set out on a journey to learn about what patients need when it comes to communicating complex topics. To do so, we brought patients, caregivers, advocacy, healthcare providers, and communication experts to the table to help us co-create new ways of communicating.

Over the years the learnings from co-creation have fed into a set of resources that has genuinely helped us improve our communications at BMS. But we knew if we wanted to make a real impact, we couldn't keep the UPL behind closed doors — it had to be shared with the world. We are dedicated to improving how we communicate with patients across the healthcare system, which means we can't do it alone. We are honored to share the UPL with you and hope you find it a useful set of resources.

We genuinely hope you engage with the principles and tools, and we invite you to get in touch with us to let us know how it goes. We are also always looking for collaborators to join us at co-creation sessions and explore new areas in patient experience and communication. Thanks for joining us on this great adventure!

We’re looking forward to hearing from you,
The Patient Hub
