Clinical Labels: Keeping the Patient & Site in Mind

Clinical Trials, Life Sciences, Patient Recruitment & Retention,
  • Tuesday, June 17, 2014

MG_3167-sized-1Clinical label production is typically on the critical path to bringing an investigative drug to market for a simple reason: No clinical trial can take place without labels. Even if the protocol is approved, the investigational product (IP) and comparator are on hand, the clinical supplies are in place, the sites are lined up and ready to recruit patients – in short, if everything except the labels are in place, the clinical trial cannot proceed. Yet, labels are often perceived as an afterthought of the clinical supply or package process and adequate consideration of clinical label design and execution has significant implications for the patient, your patient adherence and ultimately recruitment success.

Clinical labels aren’t just stickers that you slap on a bottle. Patients and sites rely on the label to convey critical information and regulatory agencies require specific text. So, how do you juggle these needs in a manner that meets regulatory requirements while best addressing the needs of the patient? This webinar will explore the impact of clinical labels design and execution on the patient and site experience.

From translation of text to highlighting key pieces of information, this webinar will:

  • Identify best-practices for eliminating label text translation bottlenecks and ensuring error-free translations for the patient and the site
  • Detail clinical label design strategies that balance regulatory requirements with the needs of the patient and the site
  • Present strategies that enable you to build flexibility into your clinical label design and production process
  • Analyze the implications of clinical label translation, design and production decisions on the patient and the site and identify solutions for driving patient adherence
