We Want To Give Patients More Choices

How are you contributing through your work at Roche to help patients?

Advanced patients usually have to receive chemotherapy several weeks after a major surgery lasting a few and even a dozen hours. It’s very devastating. But patients can enjoy a long survival after the chemotherapy combined with target therapy. To patients and their families, it is like a narrow escape from death. Our job is to think for patients and light up hopes for them. It is a sense of mission to bring better medicines to those who need them.

What is the most challenging part of your job or about working at Roche in general?

It took hard work to establish a good partnership with doctors. At the very beginning I could only have a small talk with them. As doctors had to visits patients at home and performed operations, I usually had no choice but to wait or chat with them when they dined.

I think it’s quite pleasant to talk with doctors and I like it.

Have you seen the result of your work reflected in helping patients?

Doctors and me exchange academic insights and literature updates from time to time.

As doctors have to face a lot of medical information consultants, they do not want to hear you say how good your drugs are. They want to know most what these drugs can bring to patients.

 “We want to give patients more choices” Hearing this, doctors usually do not refuse immediately. Of course they want to know newer and better drugs.

 So the truth is the efficacy of Roche’s drugs has been proven by a lot of clinical tests and they can really improve the life quality of patients.
