The decentralized trials approach isn’t a new concept. It allows patients to receive most – if not all – of their treatment at home rather than at a clinical site. Many are the benefits of this patient-centric model. However, although more than 75% of clinical trials professionals report that at least some of their activities have already been decentralized due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many still hesitate to switch, raising concerns about regulations, IMP integrity, data protection and patient care.

On December 14th, 2021, Andrea Zobel, Senior Director Personalized Supply Chain at World Courier, will delve into decentralized trials logistics and setting up a best-in-class central dispensing model ensuring compliance, integrity, end-to-end visibility, and safety.

She will be joined by industry experts from the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE)’s Direct-to-Patient task force to discuss the most common concerns and myths raised around the central dispensing model.
