A rewarding opportunity to join OECT Summit in three key locations in Berlin Germany, Toronto Canada and Philadelphia USA.

OECT Summit is targeted for professionals who are always seeking for new opportunities, visionary ways of conducting performance. Study Feasibility and Patient recruitment & retention offer major challenges to the clinical researcher, clinical project managers, clinical operation managers with potential for significant impact on timelines, budgets, CRA talent rejuvenation, collaborations & partnerships and ultimately the scientific integrity of the trial itself.

Many factors affect the recruitment of patients and difficulty in finding suitable patients is driving the development of many innovative methods for accessing new patient groups. How ‘Big Data Analytics and Date Driven Decision Making’ can have a significant impact in clinical trials. The artificial intelligence, remote trials/ virtual trials, decentralised trials, connected health and digitalisation means that new technologies and changing strategies for communication can be used to engage patients at early development stage, have feasibility right at first, accelerate site selection initiation process & great effect to reach out to patients directly.

Additionally, outreach through patient advocacy groups, social service agencies are becoming more important to communicate with patients viable for trial participation as well as for those already enrolled in clinical trials. How to maximise the benefit of this approach and ensure our regulatory obligations are appropriately met will be the subject of several sessions during the summit.
