A spotlight on direct to and from patient shipments

We all know that the adoption of Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCTs) has accelerated during the pandemic. Much has changed – some elements have rapidly evolved and others have continued as before. So, what do you need to know to successfully operationalize Direct-to-Patient (DTP) shipments in this DCT world?

Today, we’ll share lessons learned and bust some myths to make your job easier. This webinar will cover DTP aspects of DCTs with a focus on patient, physician, and regulatory compliance needs including touching on how the supplies required can dictate the complexity of the DTP approach.

What you’ll learn:

• Lessons learned from patients and physicians related to DTPs and other key DCT methods.
• A variety of DTP strategies depending on the regulatory environment of the region.
• Successful case studies pertaining to DTPs.

Call to action:

There is no one-size-fits all approach to DTPs. Your flexibility and timely adoption is key to successfully supporting patients and meeting regulatory requirements.
