How Mobile Nursing is Evolving to Meet the Stringent Demands of Today’s Decentralized Clinical Trials



Webinar Date/Time: Thu, Jan 26, 2023 11:00 AM EST

As the shift toward hybrid and fully remote decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) continues, every sponsor, CRO and site should be conversant in their benefits and how they work. Learn how DCTs can improve diversity, recruitment and retention, and understand the process of deploying services to the home.

Event Overview:

There was a time when decentralized clinical trial (DCT) methods were seen as an accommodation to be used only as a last resort, but that’s no longer the case. The dramatic rise in DCTs spurred by the pandemic continues today, to the point that every sponsor, CRO and site should be conversant in the benefits of DCTs and the process of deploying services to the home. This webcast will cover how:

  • DCT methods are becoming even more relevant, given the FDA’s increasing pressure on sponsors to increase diversity in clinical trials.
  • Relevance also increases as competition among sponsors for participants intensifies.
  • The convenience of DCTs for patients can enable investigators and sites to recruit more diverse participants from wider geographic areas and improve recruitment and retention.
  • Specially trained mobile research nurses are an essential component of DCTs.

Key Learning Objectives
Attendees will leave the webinar with an understanding of the history of DCTs and specific knowledge of one of the less understood aspects of DCTs: the critical role of mobile research nurses. Attendees will get answers to questions such as:

  • What qualifications do mobile research nurses need to have?
  • What specific activities are they authorized to carry out in the patient’s home?
  • What specialized training do mobile research nurses receive?
  • How is adherence to GCP and all 18 CIS controls assured?
