    At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

    • Identify the advantages and disadvantages of platform and umbrella trial designs
    • Assess the feasibility of implementing platform and umbrella trial designs in future clinical trials
    • Discuss operational considerations of platform and umbrella trials
    • Define the recent FDA guidance documents on clinical trial population diversity
    • Discuss new technologies and innovative trial designs that could potentially enhance trial population diversity
    • Obtain information from case examples to avoid potential pitfalls
    • Share a roadmap for the documentation and operationalization of innovative clinical trials
    • Discuss operational challenges and provide an explanation of available tools
    • Present suggested best practices and lessons learned for the future trial development
    • Apply machine learning into the drug development processes
    • Calculate the Probability of Success using Bayesian methodology
    • Recognize opportunities to use data more effectively
    • Determine types of Real-World Evidence (RWE) and RWD which could augment-by-design decentralized or adaptive clinical trial designs during study start and execution
    • Connect sources of patient data or community data to Electronic Data Capture (EDC) or Clinical Data Repository (CDR) for on-study deployment, emphasizing the value of Real-time data acquisition and processing
    • Evaluate data security and privacy, and identify barriers to uploading RWD back to patient’s Electronic Medical Records (EMR) or patient accessible dashboards to enhance routine patient care and engage patients in the clinical trial
