Managing Cultural Variability in PRO Measurement in Global Clinical Research, New Life Science Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) September 26, 2013

Too frequently, evidence generation on endpoints playing a key role in the value demonstration story fails, not because the product is not doing well, but just because the measure missed the point.

The globalization of clinical research has strong implications for outcomes measurement since psychomodulated measures such as Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) or Clinician-Reported Outcomes (ClinROs) are commonly included in international clinical studies. Due to the sensitivity of such scales to culture, their cross-cultural equivalence can be as important as is centralized laboratory testing for the successful development of a product.

In a new webinar hosted by Xtalks, esteemed speakers will focus on the context of use of Clinical Outcomes Assessments (COA) translations, recommendations from the field including the FDA, EMA, and ethics committees, and the importance of linguistic validation vs. translation. Real examples of the challenges encountered during linguistic validation, and other variables that impact the process will be discussed.

A Q&A with the audience will follow the main presentation.
