Q: What do you see as the greatest challenge for the PFS industry to overcome at the moment?
A: As the movement to shift drug delivery therapies from the clinical setting to the home intensifies, the PFS industry faces new design challenges related to delivering drug in a safe and predictable manner by patients, and their caregivers, in the home.
Debbie McConnell and Annie Diorio-Blum will be hosting an Interactive Workshop during the SMi’s Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast Conference: Design Considerations for the World Outside the Clinic – April 10th – where they will debunk key myths regarding what the PFS industry knows when it comes to user needs. An then provide participants with the insights and skills they need to collect user needs and convert them into design requirements using a methodical, repeatable approach.
Another Workshop on April 10th – Human Factors for Connected Drug Delivery Systems – will be hosted by Cambridge Consultants.
