Workshop on cross-border participation in clinical trials

Clinical trials in cancer are typically performed in small patient populations with specific, often rare, mutations. Recruiting sufficient number of patients for such trials in each Nordic country is challenging and sometimes almost impossible. Recruiting patients from the whole Nordic population however carry great potentials and makes the region attractive for clinical trials and drug development. Recruiting patients to trials in another country, cross border, has however proven to be difficult.

The aim of this workshop is to bring the different stakeholders to the same table to identify and address the obstacles preventing cross border participation in clinical trials in the Nordic region. Working groups will be established which in greater detail will address the different problems.
