Session Information

Title: Training and Support in a Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCT) World

Date: Wednesday, September 28th, 2022

Time: 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. PDT

The emergence of DCTs has inspired a new way of thinking about clinical research. As the industry looked to solve the problems created by COVID-19, new technologies, approaches, and ways of thinking emerged. One of the areas that needed re-imagination was the training and support we provide for our patients.

Typically, in a traditional clinical trial site personnel are available to provide training and support for patients as they encounter the technologies and tests required to deliver the data for clinical trials. As DCTs became prevalent, our patients were left to manage these challenges on their own, often isolated in their houses.

This panel will discuss aspects of these challenges including:

  • Realities of patient-focused training and support in the decentralized trial environment
  • Best practices, common errors, and solutions that allow you to consider the support and training of your patients in your trial design
  • Considerations for monitoring the success of your training and support to proactively avoid issues resulting from patients misunderstanding proper trial participation
