Duration 1 Day

This interactive, practical workshop will feature a range of speakers on topics including Investigational Medicinal Product Management, consent, and a shared workshop on decentralised clinical trials.

    Working in groups, we’ll look at different aspects of decentralised trials and practical considerations from those ‘in the know’ and those ‘wanting to know’. 

    So, whether you have experience in decentralised clinical trials or not, your contributions, experience, curiosity and innovation can be brought to discussion of:

    • Sponsor Oversight
    • Investigator Oversight
    • Quality Assurance & Audit
    • Operational Considerations

    Each group will share its outputs with the whole group before a final wrap up, questions and answers.
