Video: How Can Pharma Improve Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials are integral to the drug development process. Yet, they are still affected by long-standing challenges, including poor recruitment and retention, the use of paper-based systems, and siloes among participating stakeholders. Though many in the industry agree that something must be done to address these challenges, practical steps are necessary to see real and lasting change. 

The Medicine Maker brought together an expert panel to discuss the challenges affecting clinical and what can be done to make a difference. 

Watch our video to learn more about the trends and challenges affecting clinical trials, including the growing prevalence of digital and decentralized trials, COVID-19 induced supply chain issues, and the impact the war on Ukraine is having on trials.
