Trials and Tribulations
Shaping a Bright New Future for Pharmaceutical Medicine
FPM Annual Symposium 2021 is available on demand!
This landmark two-day virtual conference from November 2021 is now available on demand for a limited time.
The COVID-19 pandemic has put us all on an extraordinary learning curve. Following a period of adaptation, agility and growth, pharmaceutical medicine is in the public spotlight now more than ever before. Terms like ‘R rates’, ‘epidemiology’ and ‘clinical trials’, have entered the public lexicon. The UK Chief Medical and Scientific Officers are now bona fide celebrities. The way we have communicated has had to develop to respond to immediate public concerns and we have learnt the utmost importance of considered, open and honest dialogue.
AI and digital health technologies are augmenting and driving pharmaceutical innovations and the ways in which we conduct clinical trials. We have discovered the power and challenges of international and cross-sector scientific collaboration, and the benefits of fast and flexible regulatory strategies to bring medicines at pace and scale to patients.
The themes of this on-demand event are:
- AI and digital health,
- clinical trials adaptations and innovations,
- health policy,
- and communication with patients and the public.
