To Your Health & Prosperity – An Action Plan to Health Attract More Clinical Trials to Canada
To Your Health & Prosperity - An Action Plan to Help Attract More Clinical Trials to Canada is the action plan from the 2011 National Clinical Trials Summit. It is the third and final paper in a trilogy of papers from the clinical trial summit hosted by Rx&D, CIHR, and ACAHO. It reflects a vision for Canada as a premier country for industry led clinical trials. The goals of the action plan are to help halt and reverse a downward investment trend, improve overall business practices as they pertain to clinical trial start up times, and present a forward looking business opportunity through information and incentives for global companies. The action plan contains nine recommendations in three strategies. The first recommendation encapsulates its implementation through potential alignment with the Strategy for Patient Oriented Research (SPOR). This final version of the action plan also contains an appendix which reflects feedback given on the final draft. This feedback is largely supportive and also instructional as it pertains to the implementation of this plan. AS such, it is considered part of the final document.
