Clinical Trials Are Broken. Here’s What We Need To Do To Fix Them.

Panel discussion with SCRS, ACRO, ACRP, and APCR. Clinical trials are costly, time consuming, and at times very inefficient. Janet Woodcock of the FDA recently remarked that the clinical trials system is “broken” and there needs to be new ways to collect and utilize patient data. What can the industry collectively do to make the process better? This panel features experts on sites, investigators, clinical professionals, and CROs to discuss the efforts we can take to make trials more efficient. They will address four major problems plaguing clinical trials.
