10 Things You Didn’t Know About Decentralized Clinical Trials

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Patient Recruitment & Retention,
  • Tuesday, December 19, 2023

In this informative webinar, discover the future of clinical trials with decentralized clinical trials (DCT), exploring virtual operations and patient-friendly approaches. The adoption of DCT has increased exponentially in recent years. As adoption accelerates, so do the possibilities that virtual conduct enables. While DCT may seem relatively new to many, there are companies and investigators that have been delivering remote trial conduct for more than a decade.

In this webinar, attendees will discover:

  • How recruitment works in a decentralized trial
  • How physical exams and adverse events (AE) are managed
  • How oversight is handled in a virtual site
  • What procedures can be performed at home
  • How to ensure proper regulatory supervision
  • How the drug is shipped to the patient directly, without a physical site
  • How to implement this patient-friendly approach to clinical research with insights from the industry’s top DCT investigators

Join this webinar, where the featured speakers will delve into key questions that are often asked about virtual trials and remote study conduct.
