Clinical Trials 101

Thursday, November 2
1:00pm – 2:00pm EST

This webinar will tell you what you need to know about clinical trials, their history, and how to prepare for a trial. You’ll learn the difference between industry sponsored and investigator initiated trials, and you’ll get an inside look at the approval process.

Dawn Richards, our host, represents Clinical Trials Ontario, an organization whose mandate is to work collaboratively with the clinical trials community, the public and strategic partners to improve Ontario’s clinical trials environment and attract clinical trial investment to the province, while supporting the highest ethical and quality standards.

Plus, we’ll be hearing from several patients who have experience with clinical trials and asking them to share those experiences.

The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer discussion, with questions encouraged for both the host and the panel.
