Data Management Considerations for Decentralized Clinical Trial Implementation

September 28, 2022 10:00 - 11:00 AM EST

What You Will Learn

Recent improvements in clinical trial technology hardware, software, and applications have led to them being more user-friendly. These improvements have changed the implementation of clinical trials, allowing remote participation because of the increased accessibility and use of technology. Through electronic consent, electronic diaries, electronic clinical outcome assessments, wearables (e.g., a GPS or heart rate monitor), and telehealth, Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCTs) allow better access to clinical trials than ever before. In this webinar, MMS data managers will review the basics of decentralized clinical trials and expand on how to address challenges that may arise when working on a DCT.

Key Takeaways

  • What constitutes a decentralized clinical trial?
  • An overview of different DCT models, full vs. hybrid, and how to differentiate between them
  • Optional modules and add on applications
  • How to manage challenges that may arise, including impacts to potential timelines
