OBN Digital Events:
How a Patient Centric Approach to Clinical Trials can Revolutionise Drug Discovery

Kindly supported and hosted by


Event Outline:
In the past there has been minimal engagement with patients during clinical trials, and a perceived lack of clarity around how patients can have a positive impact in medicine discovery, research and development. 

Expert speakers at this BioTuesday will provide insight into how placing patients at the heart of the drug development process, can greatly increase the chances of long-term success. They will also address how understanding patient needs, insights, values and expectations can be critical components to both the scientific discovery process and real-world application of treatments.

Areas to be addressed include:
- Where are we now with clinical trial delivery? What are the issues and how can a ‘patient centric’ approach encourage positive change?
- The importance of Patient Organisations – what are they and why are they essential for patient recruitment and retention?
- What modals of engagement are most common in a patient centric approach within clinical trials?
- How can emerging technology and AI be used support patients in clinical trials, and what impact do they have on the speed and outcome of trials
- How open communication about patient commonalities is key to developing best practice in clinical trials across therapeutic areas
- Does a ‘patient-centric’ approach impact regulatory & compliance factors? 
- What are the perceived challenges of a patient centric approach?

We will also hear case studies from companies who have implemented a Patient Centric approach to their clinical trial model, and hear how this has positively impacted the study results.
