About

We are facing a ‘new normal’ based on the current experience in clinical trial conduct during a pandemic.

Difficulties in reaching sites have led to a new concept of facing clinical development in a multi-factorial way; such as a more pragmatic approach for sites monitoring, a creative risk analysis and contingency while still maintaining data quality and compliance.

PPCD 2021 focuses on how this influences the patient’s journey and involvement as partners of clinical research and what strategies we have put in place for the next steps to the ‘new normal’!

Discussions will include:

  • Industry and patients: Multifactorial journeys to engagement
  • Regulatory agencies: Involving patients in the process
  • Hybrid clinical trials: The new norm
  • Changing clinical development: Lessons from Covid 19
  • Compassionate use and patient access: A look at the options
  • The patient experience: Testimonials and information exchange
