Pharmaceutical Clinical Trials
Transparency and Privacy
Build Brand Trust and Navigate
Evolving Regulations

Thursday, July 23, 2020 • 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. EDT

Are you prepared for the shift to increased clinical trial transparency and the drive for more access to data?

A flurry of new clinical trial transparency regulations from the 2007 FDA Amendments Act (FDAAA) Final Rule (2017), the European Medicines Agency (EMA) Policy 0070 (scheduled to resume in 2020) and Health Canada’s Public Release of Clinical Information (2019) are part of the impetus.

These are coupled with the increased need for access to clinical data due to COVID-19 spurring the acceleration of research and vaccine development. Not to mention the more general trends toward voluntary data-sharing initiatives that enable researcher access to structured individual patient data.

You need a broader and more robust toolkit of capabilities to stay compliant. For instance, how can you incorporate quantitative anonymization in order to ensure trial participant privacy?

Sarah Lyons, general manager of Privacy Analytics, and Vivien Fagan, director, medical writing and clinical trial disclosure for IQVIA will explain how to build brand trust through clinical trial transparency, navigate evolving transparency regulations and protect patient privacy when sharing clinical trial data.

Webinar Takeaways:

  • Explore current transparency requirements for study publication from the FDA, EMA and Health Canada

  • Grasp the link between transparency, privacy and brand trust, and how privacy-preserving data-sharing methods can help sponsors earn trust with internal and external stakeholders, including patients themselves

  • Understand new regulatory guidance, EMA Policy 0070 and Health Canada Public Release of Clinical Information, on how to anonymize clinical study reports

  • Implement best practices for anonymization to enable trial transparency while protecting participant privacy, including quantitative re-identification risk measurement

  • Preserve data utility and protect patients when sharing data voluntarily
