Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
Sponsors, regulators and even patients themselves are placing an increasing emphasis on patient-direct data in clinical trials. This webinar will delve into patient self-reporting, examining the use of paper and electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePRO) by phase and therapeutic area, and the projected use of patient-direct data. Using data from over 7,000 studies, viewers will see the most commonly used questionnaires and quality-of-life instruments.
Join keynote speaker Anne Zielinski, Global Lead for the Patient Engagement at Medidata Solutions, as she explores how this information can help improve clinical trials. She will discuss opportunities to decrease the burden for patients participating in clinical research, and for sponsors and CROs who design and conduct trials. With examples of sponsor-specific information on PRO and questionnaire usage, Ms. Zielinksi will also examine how organizations can increase the quality of their patient-reported data and the ease of collecting that data.
