During OSP’s November 17 online event, a group of experts will offer insights, advice, and examples of solutions that put patients at the center of studies.

Improving the patient-centricity of clinical trials is a stated goal of nearly every organization involved in drug development. Titles like “chief patient officer” are found on the roster of numerous pharmaceutical firms, and sessions focused on ways to infuse the patient voice into studies are found on numerous industry conferences’ agendas.

Still, trial patients don’t always end up being the star of the show. Based on conversations with pharma leaders, contract research organization staff, and patients themselves, the clinical research industry still could use some progress in the area of patient centricity.

That’s why Outsourcing-Pharma is presenting Patient-centric Solutions​, a special one-hour online event, to dive into the issues and present some innovative ideas to elevate patient centricity. Broadcasting live on November 17 at 10 am CT (Chicago) | 5 pm CET (Paris), the webinar will detail reasons why the needs of patients should be considered all along the process, benefits of incorporating more patient-centric trial design, and solutions that can make it happen.

Register today and you will hear from a group of experts from three leading organizations:

Be the Match/ Center for International Bone and Marrow Transplant Research: ​For more than three decades, Be the Match (operated by the National Marrow Donor Program) has overseen what is said to be the world’s most diverse marrow registry. The Center is focused on increasing survival, treatment, and quality of life for transplant patients.

The Digital Medicine Society: ​This organization aims to advance the safe, effective, equitable, and ethical use of digital medicine. They pursue this mission through encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration among professionals at the intersection of the global healthcare and technology communities,  conducting scientific research and teaching, and promoting the adoption of best practices.

Sanofi: ​One of the world's biggest pharmaceutical companies, Sanofi employs more than 100,000 people at locations around the world. Its treatments cover a wide range of therapeutic areas, and it currently operates about 21 of its own R&D sites handling clinical research, medicines, and vaccines.

After the presentations, you and your colleagues in the digital audience will get a chance to ask questions of the speakers. And, if it turns out you can’t make the webinar on the scheduled date and time, don’t worry—your registration gives you access to the archived event, so you can listen to the entire webinar after its conclusion, at a time that is convenient to your busy schedule.

If you’re concerned about patient centricity in your organization, please register for the Patient-centric Solutions online event​ today. Also, feel free to share the link to the registration page​ with your industry colleagues.

See you there!
