Development of a patient publication steering committee (PPSC) is an innovation in industry publication practices. In this brief article, we summarise how UCB Pharma, a global biopharmaceutical company, plans to partner with patients to establish a PPSC and share insights on how medical writers could support PPSCs. The purpose of a PPSC is to plan and oversee the timely and ethical development of high-quality publications on disease burden and the patient journey, as identified by patients. In this case study, we collaborated with key internal and external stakeholders, including medical writers, to identify the key roles, governance, and documentation required for a PPSC. We have demonstrated that it is feasible to develop a PPSC framework that will guide the ethical and effective development of a patient-led publication plan. Medical writers would work within this framework to help develop and implement the plan.
