Darcy Forman – Patient Centricity in Clinical Trials

For today’s episode of the People Always, Patients Sometimes podcast we interviewed Jim Kremidas, the executive director at the Association of Clinical Research Professionals.  A veteran of Eli Lilly and Company for over two decades, Jim has a great deal of experience in the field of clinical trials – specifically regarding patient recruitment and retention.  We talk with Jim about the complexities of managing multiple simultaneous clinical trials and the role of the patients involved.  As Jim puts it, “without patients, there would be no clinical trials.”

The Association of Clinical Research Professionals was founded in 1976 as a non-profit organization that believes in improving clinical research quality through workforce innovation and collaboration.  Since it’s inception, the ACRP has grown to over 13,000 members spread across more than 70 countries worldwide.
