Critical Decision Points in the Design & Conduct of Patient Registries June 2010

Course Description

Patient registries are based on principles of observational research and offer remarkable flexibility in design and applications. They have demonstrated value in both the biopharmaceutical and the medical device arenas. Patient registries are appealing to physician investigators, and can serve as a centerpiece or as an adjunct to a product’s late-phase scientific and promotional strategy.

Although registries share some features with clinical development trials, they diverge in many important respects. Clinical, risk management, and product marketing teams can collaborate successfully to develop and implement patient registry programs. All team members should have a clear understanding of the design elements, the operational issues, and the strengths and limitations of registries.

This Interactive Web Seminar will focus on the most critical issues in the design and conduct of patient registries for biopharmaceutical and medical device applications. The seminar will cover the questions most frequently raised by clinical, risk management, and product marketing teams engaged in the development and implementation of registries.
