How Will a Second Wave of COVID-19 Impact the Regulatory Landscape?

Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical Regulation,
  • Tuesday, October 20, 2020

The regulatory landscape has shifted in the wake of COVID-19. Regulatory bodies have made concessions and released guidance in an effort to allow clinical trials to continue and also to get COVID studies up and running in record time. At the same time, the European Union (EU) has issued major judgments on Privacy and HIPAA that will also affect the industry long-term.

In this webinar, we will take a deep dive into how the regulatory changes made as a result of COVID-19 have and will continue to impact data management of clinical trials across the globe.  We’ll also discuss what the future holds with regard to the recent EU rulings.  Plus, we’ll share some tips for staying abreast of the rapid changes so you can quickly adapt and keep trials running because we all know patients can’t afford to wait.
