A must-read for anyone who wants to understand what impact tailored behavioral interventions can have on adherence!
This is precisely why we have developed our adherence support services for clinical studies. Thank you for sharing your insights, Dr Katerina Kassavou, Chimweta Chilala and Professor Stephen Sutton of the University of Cambridge.
At Link2Trials we are excited to be part of this latest initiative to develop a model to predict adherence behavior.
This model will help healthcare providers to better support patients and enable the pharma industry to develop better products and services.
What a great BEAMER team we have! So many wonderful, interesting and foremost focused and motivated people!...Read more
