Applying the Lessons of the Pandemic to Your Upcoming Trial

A Free CenterWatch Webinar  |  Sponsored by PCM Trials


Wednesday, July 27, 2022 |  11:00 AM-12:00 PM EDT
Location: Your office or conference room (no need to travel!)

Hybrid and decentralized clinical trials (DCT) broaden trial access so that you can reach a larger more diverse pool of patients. This free webinar will show you how.

While the COVID-19 pandemic increased the number of hybrid and DCTs, the clear benefits mean there’s no going back. There’s a 93% increase in clinical trials with a virtual and/or decentralized component beginning in 2022, over those in 2020

Traditional clinical trials are slower, more expensive and less efficient than DCTs and tend to limit participation by placing time and financial barriers on potential patients. Plus, they reduce diversity

As patient-centricity has become a necessity, exclusively site-based trials will become increasingly problematic. By adding DCT techniques, you’ll solve many of the issues, especially given the FDA’s pressure to improve clinical trial diversity. When DCT methods are introduced during protocol development, you can recruit more diverse participants from wider geographic areas

Ellen Weiss — PCM Trials’ vice president, in-home solutions, decentralized clinical trials — will explain the positive effects hybrid and DCT methods have on clinical trials now and into the future, helping you fully realize the advantages for your trials.

  • Clinical trial-related lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Which are the most-requested and most-used activities in home visit programs today
  • How to realize the benefits of decentralized clinical trials going forward
  • The role of home-based nursing in clinical trials
