The burdens on oncology clinical trial participants are many. Professionals involved with the execution of clinical research should keep this top of mind when planning how to conduct a study. Patients, often feeling unwell even before the clinical trial commences, are impacted by every aspect of the experience, including the technologies they are required to use. One thing study teams can do to help minimize the burden on cancer patients is to seek technologies based on patient-centered design.

In this webinar, a former oncology clinical trial participant and cancer survivor—who is also pharmaceutical R&D leader—will share some of her experiences as a clinical trial participant, including the impact of technology. She and other panelists will examine patient technologies such as electronic clinical outcome assessment (eCOA), connected devices, and more, with a focus on how a positive patient experience can have spillover effects for the site, sponsor, and overall trial.

With over 25 years of pharmaceutical industry experience, Rosie Filling has transformed R&D operations in every company she has worked for, developing clear-cut strategies to help advance clinical trials with high-quality operational execution and scientific excellence.

A respected business leader, thought leader, and mentor, Rosie’s main focus has always been the patient. She came to understand firsthand the impact that cancer can have on a person when she discovered that she had breast cancer in 2020 – during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rosie participated in an oncology clinical trial, had multiple surgical procedures, and chemotherapy. Healthy today, Rosie came through the experience with a new appreciation for the patient experience and the level of site staff responsibilities.
