    Design Thinking for Clinical Trials

    in Science

    Design Thinking is a human centered approach to innovation that helps uncover the sweet spot of opportunity where the needs of people, the possibilities of technology and the requirements for business success all converge. The application of the Design Thinking methodology (originating out of Stanford’s d.School) as a new approach to looking at solutions can lead to disruptive innovation in clinical trials for drug development. It allows for designing new ways of working, including the needs, challenges and insights about the complex world we work in.  


    In this discussion, we introduce the basic principals of Design Thinking and an understanding of how the methodology teaches empathy for the end user (the patients). We explore its ability to reframe questions and unleash innovative thinking as well as the "downside" of creative tension. Most importantly, we address how Design Thinking can drive more successful trials.  


    Hosted by Valerie Bowling, Executive Director of the Conference Forum, guests include:

    Winds of Change: The Importance of Clinical Experts As Teachers

    in Health

    We appreciate those who fought to make this profession licensed in the United States and who set up the programs in Chinese medicine, making this a valid career path. However, since it's inception in the United States and the West, Chinese medicine has been ruled largely by academics, scholars, anthropologists, and historians. There has been, and continues to be, a paucity of true clinical experts teaching this medicine. This is largley due to the fact that the leaders in this field simply lack the large, consistent patient volume needed to become expert clinicians. Chinese medicine colleges and state organizations are increasingly focused on revenue, administrative in-fighting and clinically irrelevant adademic ponderings. Meanwhile, the quality of clinical education is declining. Graduates enter the real world of managing patients' many health concerns with largely ineffective skill sets, based on theories regurgitated by scholars, most completely lacking adequate pulse diagnosis skills and/or highly effective acupuncture methods. Luckily, there are American and Western Chinese medicine practitioners who are seeing 300-600 patient visits per week who are stepping forward to teach the real life, clinically proven, practical skills so badly needed to not only survive but thrive practicing this medicine. This is medicine, it has real-world consequences and is not a theoretical exercise, people are sick and they depend on us to get them better. The time has come to listen to those on the front lines, making this medicine work everyday.
