TORONTO (PRWEB) April 13, 2021
Substantial changes are emerging in traditional clinical research catalyzed by the COVID-19 pandemic, driving the increased implementation of patient-centric approaches like decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) to test and deploy new medicines to the market. How can these developments advance pediatric clinical research?
The experts will address some of the challenges that exist in pediatric clinical research and how they may be overcome by implementing decentralized clinical trials. Following an overview of regulatory, operational, scientific, medical, digital health technology and legal aspects for pediatric DCTs in diverse therapeutic areas and medical devices, the panelists will cover important considerations for sponsors. They will discuss how to ensure proper preparedness for pediatric DCTs and the impact of DCTs on sites. Pediatric trials engage and involve the entire family.
