Direct-to-Patient Workshop: Discussing the State of the Patient-Centric Landscape from an Operational, Quality and Regulatory Perspective

Puerta de las Naciones Business Park | Madrid, Spain

June 6, 2019

Date: Thursday 6th June, 2019 
Venue: Puerta de las Naciones Business Park,  Ribera del Loira, 46, 28042 Madrid



Half of clinical trials are delayed due to patient recruitment and high dropout rates. Direct-to-Patient logistics is designed to counter these obstacles. 

Besides helping revolutionize patients’ access to clinical trials and specialty therapies by bringing temperature controlled logistics and smart inventory management directly to their homes, Direct-to-Patient logistics enables patients to think differently about participating in clinical trials and leads to improved recruitment and retention rates.

Join the World Courier and Medical Research Network teams during our morning seminar in Madrid to discover strategies for improving access to innovative therapies.

Held in Spanish and English, this free-of-charge event will cover aspects relating to the operational, quality and regulatory landscapes and patient-centricity.


Who should attend

Pharmaceutical professionals interested or working in the clinical trials area (especially healthcare professionals, biotech companies, sponsors and CROs) as well as pharmaceutical professionals interested in orphan drugs.
