  • Leveraging Your Clinical Supply Chain Talent For A Well-Run Global Clinical Trial

    Leveraging the required supply chain talent is today a critical ingredient for a well-run global clinical trial.

    This includes a well-thought-out approach for Clinical Trial Supplies, for Central Laboratory Services as well as for all the other Ancillary Supplies required at Clinical Sites for the successful execution of the trial. PAREXEL International has defined a unique approach to incorporate all those different aspects under a Clinical Logistics Leader who is an integral part of the Clinical Trial Team.

    The role of the Clinical Logistics Leader will be explained as well as the contributions to study performance that such a role can provide. Specifically we will explain how the Clinical Logistics Leader is the linchpin needed for Clinical Trial Supplies, Central Laboratory Services and Ancillary Supplies.

    Attendees will learn about many of the high-impact tools and approaches used, including:

    • Clinical Logistics Strategy
    • Study simulation and drug amount calculation
    • Project materials lifecycle management
    • Drug sourcing
    • Supply chain optimization
    • Storage, distribution, import / export management and return & destructions
    • Central Lab management
    • Subject Lab booklets
    • Integrated CRF design and EDC – Lab integration
    • ‘Study in a box’ concept

    We will also explain why it is critical to have an early involvement of the Clinical Logistics Leader during the clinical trial planning phase.
