Next: Clinical Trials Symposium on 18th November, 2022

“Are the clinical trials sufficiently understood? “ | Webinar for media

The workshop for media is a half-day online event held in Romanian. Its purpose is to acknowledge and educate the media representatives for the basic principles of developing clinical studies. 

There is an increasing need for enrolling patients into clinical trials testing the most innovative discovered molecules which might solve some urgent health issues. The best example is what is happening nowadays when only by the development of clinical trials it has been found a solution to solve the crisis brought by COVID-19 pandemic – the vaccine against Sar-Cov2.

The journalists are the most indicated vectors for the right information of the population. Therefore, they should be very well informed and educated upon this subject.

By attending this event, the journalists will get a proper understanding of the clinical research, and they will be able to cover the lack of knowledge on this subject of the general public, helping patients to be more confident into their chance for life through the novel medication research.

This webinar is for journalists and other persons interested to learn more about clinical research and the benefit of developing clinical trials for patients, and who want to get updated and correct information from trusted and professional sources.

The event is organized by AVANTYO Institute of Clinical Research in partnership with the  Institute for Development in Health and Education.

Gianina Buzuleac - Manager of Clinical Trials Center, Antibiotice S.A.

Avantyo is already a well-known knowledge provider in the field of clinical studies. All the events organized by Avantyo that I attended with my colleagues, have confirmed every time the professionalism of the whole team. The course "CRA - Training for Entry Level" from 27 to 28 February 2020, wanted nothing more than to point out the basic principles and especially the way of thinking in the spirit of GCP (Good Clinical Practice). From my point of view this desire was successfully achieved. We need to develop successful clinical trial projects in Romania and this cannot be possible without thorough knowledge.

We will definitely be present at future events! Good luck Avantyo!

Silviya Guncheva

It was a great pleasure for me to take part in the Entry Level CRA Training. The organization of every detail throughout the 2 days of training has been brilliant. We have had the privilege to receive extensive training from Dr Catalina Sarbu, GMBA & Director Clinical Operations in Parexel. Dr Sarbu has managed to summarize well and provide us with the essentials of the various phases of the clinical trial process. Her presentation was interactive and therefore she has managed successfully to draw the attention of the audience throughout the whole time. Each part of the training has contained salient examples from Dr Sarbu’s practice. I was able to receive a great deal of knowledge which will allow me to progress further to the next step of my career in clinical practice.

Alexe Lavinia Claudia

My name is Alexe Lavinia Claudia and I am a doctoral student at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy Craiova. I attended this course without expectations but knowing that we will receive a certificate when accomplishing it. Why do I say that I had no expectation? Because having them, we forget to enjoy the act itself. What did I find here? A wonderful lady, Catalina Sarbu, who for two days calmly explained to us, exemplified us, so that in the end we get the appropriate level of beginner monitors. Thank you! And see you at the next course!
