one critical element to the maintenance of clinical trials during the COVID-19 pandemic that has not been adequately addressed is the impact on volunteer interest and motivation to participate in a clinical research trial during a global pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a global impact on nearly every facet of life. Aside from the immediate health emergency and burden to society, SARS-CoV-2, and the resulting coronavirus disease (COVID-19), has directly affected nearly all social, economic and political conventions worldwide. The conduct of clinical research and, by extension, the continuity of drug development has not been immune to the effects of COVID-19. According to a survey published by CenterWatch, 69 percent of responding investigative sites indicated that lockdown measures have impacted their ability to conduct ongoing trials and 78 percent said COVID-19 affected their ability to start new trials.

In response to the pandemic’s impact on clinical trial continuity, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) acted swiftly with the publication of new guidelines and strategies on how sponsors and investigative sites could adapt to the pandemic while also emphasizing patient safety and trial integrity. While a wealth of information exists on adapting these guidelines into practice, one critical element to the maintenance of clinical trials during the COVID-19 pandemic that has not been adequately addressed is the impact on volunteer interest and motivation to participate in a clinical research trial during a global pandemic.

Join Dr. Trisha Shamp, Senior Medical Officer, Prism – Nucleus Network and Jeff Cosgrove, VP, USA, Nucleus Network in a live webinar on Friday, September 18, 2020 at 4pm EDT.
