Are you ready for the Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS) implementation?

The Clinical Trials Information System is a harmonised and simplified end-to-end single entry point for clinical trials information in the European Union and in the European Economic Area and will go live on 31 January 2022.

As a single entry point, it will be used for the submission, management and assessment of information throughout the life cycle of a clinical trial. The exchange of information between sponsors and Member States will be fully electronic.

Are you interested in online training??

In an ever changing and at times a fast paced environment the world of pharmaceuticals demands cohesion and understanding across the board, to allow growth and success in any business either directly or indirectly involved with it. With regulations and guidelines becoming more stringent and extensive along with constant revisions and updates of the same it can be hard to keep up. It is important that you and your colleagues have an understanding of these guidelines that relate to the work that you do to ensure safety of patients and company compliance.

In certain instances guidelines and recommendations are hundreds of pages long and differ between countries, this places huge time pressure on individuals and businesses to keep up to date and often a brief read over them leaves people feeling a little confused and sometimes without even a basic understanding as to what actually needs to be done.

IVOWEN are here to help you gain a better understanding of, and, confidence in, current guidelines and technical updates. Ivowen has always offered training in many areas of pharmaceuticals but are now looking at providing these training sessions online to help our clients to gain a higher level of expertise through easier access.

We would be very grateful if you could complete the online survey we have created to help us assess how the online training sector can benefit our clients.

It takes less than 3 minutes to complete and would help us immensely:

Thank you for your feedback.

Don’t get too busy to keep up to date!
