VIDEO – Global Health Crises: Preparation, Response, & Lessons Learned
Joseph Sgherza, President of ClinicalRM, and Kevin Bickford, Sr. Director of Global Operations, recently interviewed with PharmaVOICE Magazine for an Editor’s Take Video at the DIA 2016 Annual Conference, addressing the following key questions:
• What is ClinicalRM doing to prepare and respond to global health crises, particularly infectious diseases such as Zika and Ebola, that have drawn international media attention and pose a serious threat to global health?
• How can an efficient adaptive design model support infectious disease outbreaks and meet rapid response needs with clinical trials?
• What effective preparation can be made to respond to a pandemic? What lessons, from a more concentrated outbreak such as Ebola in West Africa, can be applied to the response needs of a more widespread pandemic?
Watch the full length interview above to learn more about ClinicalRM’s efforts to prepare and respond to global health crises, lessons learned from previous infectious disease outbreaks such as the 2014-2015 Ebola crisis in West Africa, and how an adaptive design model can support clinical trials in pandemic situations.
