Why family medicine?
The clinical research industry today is undergoing a major change and is looking to adopt and implement innovative ways to accelerate drug development and access to the market. The industry has started to look at patients not as “subjects” but as informed collaborators, whose participation is crucial to the overall success of the trials. The emerging concept of “patient-centric trials” is a new opportunity for both the clinical research industry and family medicine supported by technology, social media, and education.
