19th-20th February 2019, University Foundation, Brussels, Belgium
EFGCP Annual Conference 2019 focuses on achieving better integration of clinical research in healthcare.
Many scientific, methodological and regulatory challenges in research and development of treatments for different diseases have been successfully overcome in the past years.
However, in order to reach the ultimate ethical objective of ensuring patient centricity in treatment development, changes must be envisaged in our healthcare environment, in clinical research concepts, in the digital environment, in the way stakeholders collaborate, in the healthcare professionals’ knowledge and attitude towards new treatments development, in the requirements of competent authorities and payers, and in funding strategies.
During the conference sessions, we will hear from ethics, physician, patient, industry and government experts and discuss with the audience about new process proposals to achieve such an integration of research in healthcare. This will include :
• Clinical trials and novel Research & Development strategies
• Patient driven initiatives for a roadmap to health
• The need for different protocol designs and concepts
• The optimal use of other available data sources
Discussions with the audience in subject-dedicated workshops will focus on the use of current methodologies, challenges and advantages of the new technologies, with a view of effective clinical research and medical care integration.
