Dr Pauline Leonard speaks to ecancer at the 2019 Biosimilars Educational Advanced Masterclass for Pharmacists (P-BEAM) in Zurich about the effective communication of biosimilars in the clinic.

Dr Leonard emphasises the importance of effective communication skills, especially among both healthcare professionals and patients.

She also explains how this communication can be improved, as more than half of patients would like to be involved in the decision-making process. Along with the challenges associated with using biosimilars in the clinic.
