DIA 2020 marks one of the first pharma industry conferences to be held completely online, with senior leaders from Merck, PPD, Pfizer, Janssen of Johnson & Johnson, IQVIA, Covance, as well as regulators from the NMPA, EMA, FDA and more. With patient-centricity as a key theme, it brings needed focus to issues at the forefront of medical communications. Pfizer highlights the need to enhance patient-centric channels to better reach the 45% of global patient inquiries originating in Brazil, the United States, China, Australia and Japan through the advancement of global style guides and local interpretation. CISCRP emphasizes the need to augment the diversity of clinical trials by empowering patients to become advocates for their participation, examining the lacking involvement of specific minorities as a problem for drug developers.  

CSOFT's CEO Ms. Shunee Yee emphasizes, "Regulations for clinical trials differ in each country, and entering foreign markets effectively requires local knowledge, quality translations, and expert medical writing for global success."
