In this forum, a panel of experts will share their experience on the breakthroughs -what really works, and the deal breakers -what’s not working yet or was harder than expected. Our aim is to debunk the decentralized trial hype and share lessons learned. The forum will include perspectives from a sponsor, a decentralized trial vendor, a 'site' and if possible, a patient who has participated in a decentralized trial.

Learning Objectives

Discuss key learnings about what's working and not working in decentralized trials; Discuss individual experiences on design and implementation of decentralized trials; Describe the patient and site perspective on participation in decentralized trials.
