Event overview:

Today’s clinical trials are more complex, requiring 65-85% more procedures, endpoints, collected data points, and research sites than a few years ago. This complexity creates logistical challenges for clinical operations teams that result in a variety of problems. For example, sites not having IP for a patient visit, expired lab kits, lost biological samples, and delayed resupply shipments. These clinical supply chain management problems contribute to increased costs, reduced productivity, decreased patient retention and threaten the success of clinical trials.

This webinar will explore the underlying causes of these problems and discuss best practices to address them by optimizing your clinical supply chain. Topics will include:

  • Facilitating collaboration between sponsors, CROs, sites, labs, vendors, and biorepositories
  • Obtaining real-time visibility into the location and status of IP, lab kits, samples, and supplies
  • Gaining traceable chain-of-custody for biological samples, IP, lab kits, and supplies
  • Ensuring compliance through protocol adherence and amendment harmonization

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Why and how clinical trials are more complex today than 10 years ago
  • Challenges created by the increasing complexity of clinical trial protocols
  • Best practices to achieve a successful clinical trial through clinical supply chain
  • optimization

Who Should Attend:

  • Vice Presidents, Directors, and Managers of Clinical Operations
  • Clinical Project Managers
  • Clinical Research Coordinators
  • Certified Clinical Research Professionals
