About Event

OECT Summit - Study Feasibility, Clinical Monitoring and Patient
Recruitment Retention

OECT Event Overview
OECT Summit is targeted for professionals who are always seeking for new opportunities, visionary ways of conducting performance. Study Feasibility and Patient recruitment & retention offer major challenges to the clinical researcher, clinical project 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 the ‘Big Data’ can have a significant impact in clinical trials. The artificial intelligence and rise of social media 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 advocate 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.
