About this Webinar

Decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) use processes and technologies that differ from traditional clinical trials. DCTs use telemedicine and mobile and local healthcare providers, conduct visits virtually, obtain consent remotely, and vary from being completely site-less to incorporating virtual elements.

This webinar introduces DCTs (also called virtual trials) and explores the evolution from traditional trials to decentralized models. It discusses the potential benefits to sites and subjects, and barriers to adaptation. It explains terminology and components of DCTs and reviews regulatory considerations when conducting them. It concludes with a discussion of the types of research protocols that may best include virtual aspects and “web-side” practices when conducting virtual study visits.
