Conference Starts in:

13th Annual Operational Excellence in Clinical Trials Summit (OECT Summit)

Study Feasibility, Site Management and Patient Recruitment Retention


OECT Summit 2023 is targeted for professionals who are always seeking for new opportunities, visionary ways of conducting performance. Study Feasibility, Site Management and Patient recruitment retention offer major challenges to the clinical researcher, clinical project managers, clinical operation managers with potential for significant impact on time lines, 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’ can have a significant impact in clinical trials. The artificial intelligence, remote trials/virtual trials and digitalisation means that new technologies and changing strategies for communication can be used to have feasibility right at first & 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.

Berlin, Germany And Round Table Virtual Platform

Berlin, Germany A rewarding opportunity to visit Berlin, Germany. Berlin, Germany’s capital, dates to the 13th century. Reminders of the city’s turbulent 20th-century history include its Holocaust memorial and the Berlin Wall’s graffitied remains. Divided during the Cold War, its 18th-century Brandenburg Gate has become a symbol of reunification. The city’s also known for its art scene and modern landmarks like the gold-colored, swoop-roofed Berliner Philharmonie, built in 1963. And also you can experience the venue via our virtual platform by attending remotely.
