Linguistic Validation: Facilitating Patient Diversity in Clinical Trials

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Patient Recruitment & Retention, Drug Discovery & Development,
  • Friday, May 07, 2021

Over the past couple of decades, the FDA and other regulatory bodies have pushed for greater patient diversity and an overall patient-centric approach in clinical trial management. The 21st Century Cures Act formalized this patient-centric approach, emphasizing patient-focused drug development and a push to collect real world data on the patient experience.

Linguistic validation is a critical tool in the effort to ensure patient diversity and develop a robust understanding of the patient experience across global populations. By adapting patient reported outcome instruments to a variety of linguistic and cultural demographics, drug development companies gain a broader and more in-depth understanding of the patient experience at the clinical trial stage.

Register for this webinar to learn about using linguistic validation as a tool to meet the patient diversity requirements of clinical trials.
