Decentralized Clinical Trials
Rapid evolution: How DCT’s DNA became standard in modern clinical trials
It’s impossible to deny how different clinical trials look almost four years after the pandemic revolutionized clinical research. Today, the digital and decentralized tools and technologies that enabled clinical trials to carry on through the COVID-19 pandemic are present (in some form) in nearly all clinical trials, a far cry from the dynamics of 2019.

How to write clear and compelling patient recruitment material to drive enrollment and boost diversity
Clinical trials are essential for the development of new medical treatments and devices. However, enrolling patients in clinical trials is one of the most challenging aspects of conducting these studies. This is especially true when it comes to recruiting a diverse and representative patient population.

Meet patients where they are with consent information
The cornerstone of access to any clinical research project is the informed consent process–the decision of a participant to join a study based upon full and complete sharing of information about what the study will require, the risks of participation, and the voluntary nature of that participation.
This isn’t simply the participant’s signature on a paper or electronic form. According to governmental organizations like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA), that signature is only part of the process. Of perhaps even greater importance is the provision of information to the patient accompanied by a discussion of the study and a chance to have questions answered, so that the decision can truly be considered “informed.”
How to bring patients into the product journey
Technology today has given patients unparalleled access to information and influence over their health care. As a result, many clinical trial sponsors now recognize the importance of taking a “patient centric” approach to clinical trials. That means designing a treatment, clinical trial, or other health solution centered around the patient, and includes getting feedback from patients, caregivers, families, and advocacy groups every step of the way.
In other words, it means treating patients as informed stakeholders whose participation is key to a successful trial and product following marketing authorization. Engaging patients and truly bringing them into the product journey has the power to transform the future of research and medicine. Read on to understand what patients expect from clinical trials today, and how to engage them throughout the product journey.
