Focus Forward: Leading the Regulatory Profession Into the Future
Posted 01 May 2010 | By
The recent RAPS Horizons Conference in Baltimore provided an important forum for sharing perspectives on challenges and opportunities for the regulatory profession and the healthcare sector. In conference sessions and in the hallways, regulatory professionals were continually engaged in examining the future of the profession and its practitioners. The conference featured thoughtful discussions of global regulatory issues and how current social, demographic, economic and political factors are shaping the future. It also featured a provocative presentation from Daniel Ford, vice dean of clinical investigation of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, on the serious concerns that may affect the viability of the clinical research process.
