Developing a Direct to Patient Shipment Strategy:
Part 1 of a 2-Part Panel Series
A panel of clinical trial sponsor and distribution partner representatives – all with experience in direct-to-patient shipments – will review what is possible to achieve and what constraints may be encountered when considering DtP for clinical trials. We’ll also hear from the most important clinical trial stakeholder, a patient who has experienced the shift from in-clinic visits to treatment delivered at their doorstep; he will share his perspective as it relates to the development of a DtP clinical trial strategy.
