Canadian Clinical Trial Summit – Starting the Conversation (September 15, 2011)


On September 15, 2011, ACAHO, Canada’s Research-Based Pharmaceutical Companies (Rx&D) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) co-hosted a National Clinical Trial Summit designed to help reinvigorate and re-establish Canada’s tradition of excellence in clinical trials, bringing together over 120 experts from patient care sites, research, academia, government and industry in a first time ever collaboration of this nature.  To assist, a background document entitled “Starting the Conversation” offers a very high level summary of what we know about the human, social and economic value of clinical trials, commonly discussed strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges; strategies that other countries are using to attract clinical trial investments, and some key questions for Canada to consider going forward.
