    •Are you looking to deliver your research within Europe?
    •Do you need multiple, reliable sites and experienced investigators?
    •Do you want to know why you should come to the UK?

    In the past the UK’s reputation for delivering clinical research was questionable. But that has all changed with the Department of Health’s investment in the clinical research network infrastructure in the UK.

    Over the last seven years the research landscape in the UK has improved dramatically allowing the UK to make great strides in delivering research for the Life Sciences industry. So whether you are a Pharmaceutical Company, Contract Research Organisation, Biotech, Med Tech or Diagnostic company we can help.

    The NIHR Clinical Research Network is hosting a live webinar which will explode common myths around the UK’s ability to deliver commercial clinical research. This session will be hosted by Dr Matt Cooper, Business Development and Marketing Director, of the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR CRN). It will include performance data that will demonstrate why the UK should be your first choice for running clinical research studies.

    You can discover:
    •How much the UK’s market volume of commercial contract research has grown and how we recruited over 34,000 patients to commercial clinical trials in 2014/15
    •What percentage of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) is actively delivering commercial contract research studies (with support from the NIHR CRN)
    •The free feasibility service run by the NIHR CRN
    •How to gain access to our experienced clinical experts
    •How we are keeping clinical research in the public eye
    •How the UK is sharpening its competitive edge by achieving more key first global patients

    The key to successful negotiation is preparation and knowledge; these training modules investigate the commercial research environment, delve into the position of the various stakeholder involved and provide both research specific and general negotiation tips to support you in clinical research.

    Module 1: Introduction and life-sciences industry partner
    This module sets the scene for the environment in which commercial clinical research negotiation takes place and considers the importance of maintaining a mutually beneficial partnership approach between the life-sciences industry and the NHS when working together to deliver clinical trials. The latter part of first module goes on to detail the position of the life-sciences industry, from the challenges currently faced to the regulations they must adhere to and the links between specialist budgeting tools and the national costing templates.

    Module 2: Understanding the NHS Organisation’s Position
    This module considers the position of the NHS providing both healthcare to the nation and a commercial research service offering. The session details the currently challenges faced by the NHS, breaks down the national cost template methodology in relation to NHS costs and considers the role of the Government’s national tariff for healthcare.

    Module 3: Negotiation Mediation
    Session three describes the role of the Network as a mediator in commercial trial negotiations. It investigates topics specific to commercial contract research such as the budget confidence, the cost of medicines, set-up fees and alternative costing approaches. Also included are more general tips in relation to negotiating - recognising and handling conflict, building rapport and motivating parties to reach an agreement.

    Together, these modules provide in-depth knowledge around commercial clinical research cost and contract requirements for all parties involved and provide the practical skills to help you be more prepared when negotiation is required.
