WEBINAR: Data Transparency in Clinical Research

Data transparency in clinical trials has become an essential requirement for anyone involved in clinical studies. Although many pharmaceutical companies had spontaneously provided the opportunity to access data collected during their clinical trials to anyone who requested it, regulatory agencies and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) have made mandatory the effective management and publication of the data collected in clinical trials. The ICMJE and the main medical-scientific congresses require, together with the publications that report the results of each clinical trial, also the protocol, patient’s level data, and the methods used for their analysis or, as a minimum, the strategy to share such data under request.
This new approach makes mandatory to re-defining both the management of the company’s confidential and patient’s personal data by the clinical study sponsor: A challenge to be effectively faced for its translation to effective communication. Furthermore, the alignment of any document (regulatory or publication) belonging to the same study is crucial. Thus, the role of science communicators is becoming every day most important.
