2022 Annual Conference - Landscape shifts in clinical research and clinical evidence generation

SCDM 2022 Annual Conference Keynote Session - Landscape shifts in clinical research and clinical evidence generation
The pandemic played a key role in the evaluation across the drug lifecycle, especially when we talk about data. But a central challenge has been data and how to handle data quality mismatch, and we saw a big need for measuring and documenting data quality across data sets.

Clinical studies are shifting to adapt to demands and are covering longitudinal data and evidence. At the same time, regulators and industries are addressing data quality issues. It is now clear that clinical studies in the future will look different, but how? And how will the role of CDM change after incorporating data sources into clinical studies? What skills will be needed?
