SMi - Geriatric Safe Medicines Summit

16 Sep 2013 - 17 Sep 2013 - London, UK

Bookmark and Share

Clinical research in geriatric patient populations requires the adaptation of traditional clinical procedures in research studies. A relatively new area of research, geriatric patient studies requires a collaboration between many different stakeholders within this field to identify and overcome the challenges involved in recruiting, treating and retaining study subjects. Join SMi as we look to address these issues with new and innovative thinking and approaches that are being applied to geriatric clinical studies.


Discover the benefits of performing clinical trials in older people

Identify the key challenges and considerations when conducting clinical trials in older people

Address reasons for clinical trial retention difficulties

Discuss how modelling and simulation along with new patient reporting systems support clinical trials in older people

Explore new market gaps and discover new market strategy

Focus on the EMA geriatric medicines strategy
