PharmaTimes -
December 2021

With Christmas just around the corner, it is only natural to reflect on the changes and trends of 2021 as we move closer to the new year. WInter is always challenging for the healthcare sector and this year it is particularly so, due to winter pressures coupled with the ongoing issues associated with COVID-19. However, there is still much to celebrate and reflect on as we head into 2022, and much to read in our latest issue.

EMIG’s Leslie Galloway takes a look at the key developments across the UK life sciences sector, offering an in-depth look at the notable barriers to access that remain as well as other changes including the NICE Methods and Process Review.

Maddy Farnworth examines how the pandemic has brought into sharp focus the importance of long-term sustainability and resilience of health systems. In her article, she considers three interconnected areas where the pharma industry needs to focus its attention to demonstrate its continued commitment to working for good.

OVID Health’s Jenny Ousbey also considers how sustainability has taken the spotlight in 2021 for the healthcare communications industry, with 2022 shaping up to be an important year for the sector to demonstrate its commitment to progress.

We also celebrate the winners of Clinical Researcher of the Year – The Americas 2021, with the exceptional talent of clinical researchers across the Americas having been recognised during a live virtual awards ceremony on 28 October.

The International Clinical Researcher of the Year 2022 competition is now open for entry!
