As the pandemic continues to endure worldwide, CTTI is leading the way in uncovering best practices for conducting COVID-19 trials. Following up on its first playbook focusing on conducting successful trials during the pandemic, CTTI is now releasing a second playbook with eight essential principles for high-quality, diverse COVID-19 trials.
These elements, fully outlined in the new COVID-19 playbook, recommend that stakeholders:
Beginning in April 2020, CTTI conducted an analysis of COVID-19 treatment trials in ClinicalTrials.gov, met with key stakeholders to discuss best practices for designing these types of trials, and launched a public survey on how to engage racial and ethnic minority patient populations in COVID-19 trials. CTTI communicated the resulting best practices during two CTTI-hosted webinars on designing high-quality COVID-19 treatment trials and engaging racial and ethnic minorities in COVID-19 trials.
These resources can help researchers adapt to the changing landscape and generate meaningful evidence despite the unprecedented challenges presented by the pandemic. Learn more about what CTTI is doing to address clinical trials issues related to COVID-19.
