With the current/recent global pandemic, many clinical trial sites had to adopt technology and adapt processes to allow remote work.  This webinar continues our dive into decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) and their impact on clinical sites. The webinar explores how the increased use of technology is impacting the workforce.

During this review, we will discuss the implications of DCTs on traditional clinical research positions and what new roles will likely be needed. This webinar identifies new skills site staff will need to be successful when working in this new research environment.

Note: It is recommended that learners should complete the webinar Understanding Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCTs) and Virtual Study Visits prior to this webinar.
