Your Trial Post-COVID: Recovery Must Start Now 

Friday, 29 May 2020

(9am PST, 12pm EST, 6pm CET)


Join our experts for a forward-looking webinar focused on getting your clinical trials back on track as many countries begin to lift COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. By using scenario-based modelling our team has developed a comprehensive roadmap for restarting clinical trials as we move into a new phase of dealing with the pandemic.

Webinar Overview

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the clinical trial industry with many trials halted, others postponed while for those ongoing there has been a shift to remote and virtual communications with trial sites. There is growing recognition that we will be dealing with this pandemic for some time and that its effects will be far reaching, changing the ways in which clinical research has been traditionally conducted. In the light of this, it is imperative that we consider what actions are needed to resume clinical trials amid these new conditions. 

Cromos Pharma has approached this challenging task by taking an ongoing international trial and subjecting it to extensive risk assessment and scenario-based modeling. The trial metrics were analysed based on different actions, from waiting for the return of business as usual to the most aggressive rescue measures available. 

After studying the outcomes our expert team has come up with a comprehensive roadmap to navigate the “new normal” and get clinical trials up and running in the most effective and efficient manner possible.

Join us to see the range of actions required to ensure preparedness for restarting clinical trials as the pandemic enters a more controlled phase. Register now!
