  • Monday, September 01, 2014

IMG_3167-sized2China is increasingly being recognised as the land of opportunity for the clinical research industry. statistics highlight the popularity of China for clinical trials due to its aging population; a high increase in infectious diseases; a rapid rise in chronic diseases; a densely populated pool of patients and a track record of rapid patient enrolment .

Notwithstanding these positive points, China also presents challenges for the clinical research industry – a changing regulatory landscape with often protracted timelines for clinical trial approvals; new healthcare policies; import/export requirements, non-compliance to GCP (Good Clinical Practice) guidelines, not to mention cultural and language barriers.

During this webinar, the presenter will discuss these opportunities and challenges and provide tips on how to achieve success in running clinical trials in China, including:

  • Keeping up-to-date on regulatory requirements
  • Appreciating clinical trial approval timelines
  • Understanding the true cost of shipments
  • Ensuring importation documentation is in order
  • Applying best practices across the supply chain
  • Managing the entire supply chain from Sponsor to investigator site
