The 11th Annual Adaptive Designs in Clinical Trials conference, taking place in London on the 1st – 2nd April 2019, is a significant change from the 2010 version of the draft guidance. This workshop will look at the changes and what it means for submitting proposals for adaptive trials to the FDA.

It is highly beneficial for interested parties of this year’s event to attend the half day post-conference workshop on the 3rd April. SMi is delighted to host this workshop led by Tom Parke, Director of Software Solutions, Berry Consulting.

The workshop will cover key topics:

How to submit adaptive designs to regulators, what the contents of the documents should be, what simulation details need to be submitted, what problems to expect and how to submit simulation results and software.

The workshop will provide the opportunity to learn and discuss the topic in a more intimate environment. Attend this workshop if you would like to understand how the new guidance reflects changes at the FDA, how to justify the use of an adaptive design to the FDA, how to document an adaptive design, how to organise, perform, and report the clinical trial simulations necessary to support an adaptive design and how to report the results of an adaptive design.
