A DCT is proven to improve patient retention, but if it’s a method of conducting research that the trialist hasn’t experienced before, the benefit, value and possibilities when building decentralized trial visits into a protocol, might not be fully realized.
TORONTO (PRWEB) November 16, 2022
How do you retain patients in a complex trial? For clinical research professionals, testing medications and procedures on patient populations who feel unwell and have mobility or logistical challenges can be taxing, physically, mentally and emotionally for patients and their families — disruptive to their everyday lives and to the everyday lives of their families. Could incorporating decentralized clinical trial (DCT) visits help?
For many clinical trialists, patient retention and engagement, especially in a complex trial, are challenges that keep them up at night, worrying that valuable patients will not complete the trial. A DCT is proven to improve patient retention, but if it’s a method of conducting research that the trialist hasn’t experienced before, the benefit, value and possibilities when building decentralized trial visits into a protocol, might not be fully realized.
There are many procedures that can be completed in the home, and a significant number of those are far more complex than anticipated. From double blinded healthcare professionals delivering IMP, to timed pharmacokinetic blood draws and digitally linked visits, there are so many complex visit types that can be delivered in a DCT.
Register for this webinar to hear Todd McGrath, Chief Operating Officer, MRN; and Emily McDougal, Executive Director Nurse Management, MRN, talk about how MRN’s decentralized delivery of complex clinical visits benefits clinical trials, sites and patients.
Join the featured speakers for the live webinar on Monday, November 28, 2022, at 10am EST (4pm CET/EU-Central).
