Chief strategy officer to address how clinical trial sponsors can meet the expectations of transparency advocates and explore strategies in responding to their assessments
Jersey City, NJ – Feb. 6, 2019 – TrialScope, the global leader in clinical trial transparency and compliance solutions, today announced that Chief Strategy Officer Thomas Wicks will deliver a presentation at the European Centre for Clinical Research Training’s (ECCRT) Data Transparency Conference in Brussels. The presentation, scheduled for 14h00 - 15h30 Feb. 12, is titled “Watchdog Initiative: Keeping Tabs on Transparency Advocates.” Wicks will explore how sponsors can keep up with increasingly stringent disclosure regulations and how to meet the expectations of transparency advocates.
As the issue of data transparency becomes more prominent among regulators and advocates, Wicks, along with his industry peers, will tackle the topic from different angles at this two-day event. In his session, Wicks will explore advocates’ perspectives and suggest actionable strategies to respond to these challenges.
Global regulations dictate that sponsors cannot be selective with what data they wish to disclose. Advocacy groups, such as AllTrials and Bioethics International, regularly publish their assessments of clinical trial sponsors’ disclosure practices on tracking websites and in leading industry journals.
“We are at a tipping point. As regulations increase and watchdog groups mount pressure, sponsors know they need to improve their disclosure and transparency practices. It’s not an easy task; there are multiple regulatory institutions to keep up with,” explains Wicks. “Sponsors will walk away from my session understanding what is required, and how these requirements can be met for their organization.”
