Remote or decentralized trials are currently a hot topic; among others, driven by the restrictions and concerns of patients and trial sites during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Industry is trying to find the right way to design trials with remote and decentralized virtual parts to enhance enrolment and keep retention high.

  • How can we make sure that all the good ideas stand firm when those who must live through the clinical trial really make up their mind whether to participate or not?
  • Do clinical trial participants really like to have a blood draw at home?
  • Do they trust the nurse coming to visit their child without a doctor?
  • Do they appreciate the advantages of e-ICF, regardless the disease?

This course will address methodologies of patient partnering and patient engagement before and during the design of your clinical trial.
The focus will be on remote / decentralized trials. Still, the conclusions will be transferable to most other aspects of patient input into clinical trial design.
The course will navigate you through materials, methodologies, procedures, and tools that can be used in real practice to follow recent FDA guidance for PFDD (patient focused drug development) and recommendations of the EMA.
