MAY 2019 Research Alert

This month we added five new studies to the Best Practice Database, the research repository for Best Practices, LLC. This month's new studies involve three areas: Medical Affairs Role in Medical Device Launches, Combination Product Development, and Funding US Fellowships. The three studies involving Medical Affairs Role in Medical Device Launches examine multiple aspects of how device organizations are expanding the launch role of Medical Affairs; one of the studies deals with launch activities and training, the second study focuses on alignment with launch teams and call center support and the third Medical Affairs study is focused on staffing and investment. Meanwhile, the Combination Product Development study focuses on the effective utilization of patient usability insights. The final study on Funding US Fellowships looks at the funding and administration of pharma grants to support post-graduate education.
