Customised in-house training course
The content, presenters and format of this course are customised to your requirements.
The life science sector is heavily regulated and CTAs are some of the most important agreements for companies operating in this sector. Having appropriate CTAs in place is therefore essential for managing relationships between the different stakeholders, and apportioning risk and responsibilities between them. If appropriate contractual arrangements are not in place, a clinical trial may not receive approval or issues may arise with the integrity or validity of the data collected. Further, disputes between the parties can arise if responsibilities are not clearly defined in the agreement.
This intensive and interactive one-day programme focuses on CTAs in the pharmaceutical industry where legal, policy and ethical considerations underpin how these agreements are drafted. Participants will receive an overview of the legal framework regulating clinical trials in the European Union (and UK), before taking a closer, comprehensive look at specific issues that must be considered when drafting a CTA. Using a case study, participants will also look at some example clauses and will have the opportunity to practise negotiation skills in the safe environment of the course room under the guidance of our expert faculty.
By the end of the programme, you will be more confident in spotting and addressing the key issues that arise when negotiating and drafting CTAs, understand how best to mitigate against the risks and deal with them effectively when they do arise.
