You asked, we answered: How long to plan for your first eConsent implementation
Implementing digital informed consent (or eConsent) in clinical trials can be challenging and complex, but it doesn’t have to be! One of the main reasons for this difficulty is the traditional mindset and habits of conducting clinical trials. Clinical trials have long relied on paper-based informed consent process, and making the switch to a digital solution requires a significant shift in mindset and approach. Additionally, different stakeholders, such as study sponsors, ethics committees, regulators, sites and patients, may have different expectations, perceptions and requirements for eConsent implementation, adding to the complexity of the process. Therefore, careful planning, communication, and a thoughtful execution are essential for the success of an eConsent implementation and adoption in studies.
