MRN and World Courier Webinar Series
How to Successfully Implement Home Healthcare with Direct-to-Patient IMP Delivery
In this, the 3rd in a series of webinars focussed on the benefits of taking a patient-centric approach to pharmaceutical development, Medical Research Network (MRN) and World Courier discuss the practical aspects of Home Trial Support and Direct to Patient Deliveries.
• Understand the practical implications affecting patient recruitment and retention
• Hear about the value of a one stop shop and how quality and compliance are improved and competitive advantage can be gained
• Understand how the practicalities of set up and implementation can make or break a study
• Uncover the impact a patient-centric approach can have on trials and patients
Recruiting patients and retaining their participation in a clinical trial remain the biggest challenges faced by pharmaceutical companies when developing new medicines. For a patient, participation in a clinical trial can be stressful and burdensome, resulting in one in four patients dropping out of a clinical trial prior to completion. With sponsors facing tight-timelines, increased regulatory scrutiny and spiralling budgets the desire to address these challenges has never been more prominent.
Taking a patient-centric approach and making the individual rather than the site the focal point of the study is now a common theme in addressing the challenge. An increasingly common example of this philosophy in practice is the concept of Home Trial Support and Direct to Patient delivery. By relocating the clinical trial to the patient’s home through trained medical personnel and specialised logistics capabilities it minimizes the inconvenience to patients, increasing the possibility they consent to participate in a clinical trial and reduces the possibility they withdraw from the study prior to its completion.
Revisit this World Courier and MRN webinar, where we explore how practical knowledge and experience are the keys to successfully improving patient experience and moving medicine forwards.
