Access the recording of our discussion with seasoned clinical trial experts. The discussion centered around transforming vendor relationships into symbiotic partnerships.

You discovered how to encourage vendors who want to communicate consistently, lift your burdens, continually review progress, and foster a culture of success to help your clinical trials become more optimal and insightful for you and your patients.
