Best Practice Database: New Research

JUNE 2018 Research Alert

This month we added four new studies to the Best Practice Database, the research repository for Best Practices, LLC. This month's new studies explore three important areas within pharma: Medical Affairs, Investigator Sponsored Trials (ISTs), and Corporate Libraries. Two of the new studies involve Medical Affairs and how this role is creating value with its interactions with emerging external groups such as government agencies and specialty pharmacies; one study reviews communication tactics for ISTs at medical congresses; and the last study presents 2018 benchmarks on services and staffing of corporate libraries.

The new Best Practices, LLC studies listed below under Newly Added Research explore how leading companies have made their operations more effective across these different areas.
