Webinar: Pediatric Clinical Trials: Is Collaboration between Sites and Sponsors the Answer?
Dec 10-11, 2015
Since the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA 2003) and Best Pharmaceuticals for Children ACT (BPCA 2002) there has been an increased need and focus on pediatric trials to ensure adequate testing for the safety and efficacy of new pediatric therapies. The goal is simple: test and develop new and innovative evidence-based medicines and therapies to extend and enhance the lives of children. Yet the challenges of running pediatric clinical trials are numerous, with concerns about inferior feasibility and declining clinician participation. This webinar will review the challenges of running pediatric trials from both the sponsor and site perspective and propose actionable solutions, particularly around the question as to whether collaboration is the key for future success in this area.
