Every company wants to design trials that are more patient-centric and incorporate the patient voice into their trials. But how many are actually making progress? And are sponsor companies meeting the needs of their trial participants?
Clinical Leader Live will be presenting an interactive virtual conference examining what sponsor companies are doing to make trials more patient-centric, and what more still needs to be done.
Three sessions will look at patient-centricity from three different viewpoints: the drug development community, patients who have first-hand trial experience, and patient advocate groups.

Executives from pharmaceutical companies detail how they have incorporated patient feedback into meaningful change to make their trials more patient friendly.
Moderator: Ed Miseta, Chief Editor | Clinical Leader
No one is in a better position to discuss what is and isn’t working for patients than those who have experienced clinical trials first-hand. The session will discuss how clinical trials have impacted the lives of these patients and their families, what simple, patient-centric actions pharma can take to (1) increase patient recruitment and retention and (2) better meet the needs of patients and caregivers in trials.
Moderator: Lori Abrams, Sr. Director, Patient Advocacy | WCG
Stakeholders in the clinical trial arena discuss what is working with patient-centricity and what more still needs to be done. We understand that there is a lot to cover. So, this session will focus on four main areas for discussion:
The Future of Precision Medicine - Precision medicine will require greater patient diversity. Real-world patient representatives will be required in these trials, and that means pharma has to find sites that have access to these patients. What practical advice can be given on finding the right sites and the right patients?
The Cost of Trial Participation - The cost of participation can be a burdensome patient deterent (transportation, gas, parking, missed work, hotel stays, etc.) What steps can be taken to decrease such costs and taking care of reimbursements in a timely manner?
Finding The Right Trial - ClinicalTrials.gov is difficult to navigate, and there are numerous other databases for patients to search. How can we make the trial search process easier for patients and what needs to be done to modernize ClinicalTrials.gov so it can be a useful tool for patients?
How Can We Educate Physicians on Trials? - A lack of information about trial options given to patients by their PCP is of major concern. How can PCPs become more informed of available trials and be more motivated to refer patients to them?
