Date: Tuesday 16 April 2019

Venue: World Courier Office, Seesener Strasse 10-13, 10709 Berlin


Discover strategies for improving access to innovative therapies and increase patient retention. 

The benefits of in-home nursing in clinical trials are numerous and they differ between stakeholder sponsors, CROs, sites and patients. But at what point do you decide to include homecare in your project?

Direct-to-Patient projects are complex and require collaboration and planning. Deliveries must often be precisely timed to coincide with the patient's availability of nurse home visits. Immediate proof that temperature control has been maintained is required prior to administering medication. Patient samples are packages for delivery to testing labs. 

All of this requires the highest level of training and professionalism, discover insights on home care visits in clinical trials as we take you through the journey from destination to enrollment.
