I’m already looking forward to next year’s conference and continuing to network and connect with people in the healthcare industry. My biggest take away was the roundtable discussion I participated in. The topic revolved around country selection and feasibility. It was very interesting to me that although some of the talks were on global site selection, a number of participants were interested in learning about process and timing of country selection. It seems to me that even though most clinical trial sponsors (pharma or device companies) are conducting their studies globally, the selection of each country is done by accessibility, location of affiliates offices, etc. There is additional room for improvement, education, and progress to make the best decision about country selection that meets the clinical trial needs.

BBK Worldwide and the Summit for Clinical Ops Executives (SCOPE)

By Bonnie A. Brescia on Tue, Jan 31, 2012 | 3 min read

If you didn’t already know this, I am a football fanatic. Grew up outside NYC as a Giants fan. Got my Pats season tickets when Parcells moved to New England. So, Super Bowl XLVI is here and I’ll be in Miami getting ready for the SCOPE Summit for Clinical Executives once again this year. (At least our host Micah Leiberman moved the pre-conference workshop to Monday, so that’s one good thing.)  And no matter which team wins, I’ll have something to cheer about. For those of you who could care less, and will arrive at the meeting with no idea who won, if I’m sporting a Gronkowski shirt, the Patriots won. If it says Cruz on my back, then the Giants won. They both wear red, white, and blue uniforms so the colors won’t help you.

It's that sentimental time of year. Many publications and broadcasts are focused on “the year in review” and all of the remarkable advances that took place during 2011—in technology, medicine and beyond. So let’s give “social media” its due by focusing on patients’ ever-expanding access to useful medical information from a new and trusted resource: their peers.

Global expansion of internet access and subsequent increases in online traffic continue to empower patients around the world who seek medical information. A remarkable 35% of the global population access the internet for health information at least weekly, according to the Edelman Health Barometer for 2011.
