Would I Want My Mother to Be Part of a Clinical Trial?

Virginia Nido, Global Head, Product Dev Industry Collaborations, Genentech, a member of the Roche Group

For many years, our industry has been talking about becoming more patient centric and innovative in our approach to clinical trials and all the great things we are doing to make clinical trials more convenient for participants. But have we really changed the experience for patients or are we just continuing to admire the problem? Would you really want YOUR mother to be part of one of your clinical trials? We need to get real. It should not take a pandemic to make changes to our protocols and processes and ways of working. But we still have so far to go and together we must continue to drive an uncomfortable level of change.

9:05 am INTERACTIVE PANEL:

Navigating a Global Crisis: Pandemic, War, Hyperinflation, Supply Chain Disruptions…You Name It

PANEL MODERATOR:

Balazs Flink, Senior Director, Clinical Development Operations, Daiichi Sankyo, Inc.

Running a complex clinical trial involves a lot of moving pieces, forward planning, modeling, allocation of resources, and a neverending ability to adjust while maintaining the highest standards. It has never been easy, but many of us in the clinical research profession know how to do our part. The advent of DCTs, novel tech and data sources, and then the pandemic put us all to the test. However, we are now facing supply chain disruptions and other human/material resource challenges that make everything even more complicated. What is a clinical ops leader to do?
