Are you a clinical researcher looking to better connect and communicate with patients? We’ll explore how technology can enable effective engagement between sponsors/CROs and patients at various stages of clinical development. This engagement can lead to clinical studies that are well-designed, better support participants, enroll faster, and provide more complete data that are meaningful to patients.
Learning Objective :
  • Define patient engagement and why it is critical to success in clinical development
  • Identify opportunities for technology to support patient engagement during clinical study design, planning, start-up, conduct, closeout, and reporting
  • Describe the strengths and limitations of at least 3 technology solutions to engage with patients
  • Consider a plan for how you will explore a potential solution to better engage with patients
