The possibilities to meet and engage with EU regulators to discuss/explain your clinical development plans are few. A successful outcome of such meetings will often be critical for your decisions and could in the end be decisive for approval of your product. Having mapped out a plan for your regulatory interactions throughout product development and having your team prepared to present in its most persuasive manner is critical for success. Being well-prepared and performing professional is key to success. This include demonstrating intimate knowledge of your data to meet regulator’s concern as well as being able to present this in a crisp and clear manner. To get to this stage takes meticulous preparation of key messages, slides and the actual speech and may additionally include training key opinion leaders and/or patient representatives to speak or respond to questions in your support. Finally, preparing a head of questions and being able to respond clear and unequivocally to these are equally important to increase chances of success.

This short course focuses on how best to plan, manage, prepare, and execute successfully at EU high-stakes meetings. A former CHMP member and a communication specialist will walk you through the key steps in preparing as well as the “do’s and don’ts” when presenting and engaging with regulators. We will discuss how best to present your key massages and supporting slides and manuscript. This short course will include anonymized examples from real or imagined meetings and enable the participants to better understand the process and its challenges as well as how best to cope with these.
