15th Annual Patient Recruitment and Retention Summit


One of the clearest indications of pharma's intention to interact with patients is through its patient services. Additionally, it has received the greatest funding over the previous few years across a variety of therapeutic fields. Patients are the main part of the pharma system - thanks to them, scientists will be able to better understand the nature of the disease and move further in the search of effective and safe treatments. So, what is the real value of patients, where to look for them and how to keep them engaged?

The 15th Annual Patient Recruitment and Retention Summit has been created to cover all the current hot topics and challenges regarding novelty, issues, and goals in the patient recruitment area. During the conference, we will discuss such important questions as patient recruitment and retention, diversity, patient experience, digital transformation, risks and data protection. 

This interactive summit will provide you with the main answers and valuable tips shared by senior experts from the pharma market giants. You will also benefit from remarkable networking opportunities due to the limited seats at this business event. It will be the best place for getting new experience and sharing your own.
