CTTI Shares New Insights on Early Enrollment, Barriers to Remote Clinical Trials, and Improving Investigator Trainings at PRIM&R Advancing Ethical Research Conference

CTTI will present findings during three sessions at the upcoming PRIM&R Advancing Ethical Research (AER) Conference.

On Mon., Nov. 6, CTTI will share data on stakeholder perceptions of early informed consent and enrollment in clinical trials. While early enrollment could improve the ability to conduct trials that evaluate the efficacy and safety of treatments for hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia (HABP) and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia (VABP), questions remain about implementing it ethically and effectively. CTTI will share findings from its HABP/VABP Studies Project on the acceptability of an early informed consent approach for high-risk patients and essential information that should be shared with key stakeholders.

On Wed., Nov. 8, CTTI will discuss findings from its MCT Legal & Regulatory Project on actual and perceived barriers that may be preventing the widespread use of mobile technology in clinical trials. Presenters will explore potential challenges and opportunities of conducting clinical research remotely, and solicit input from clinical enterprise stakeholders on potential ethics implications. The project is part of CTTI’s Mobile Clinical Trials (MCT) Program.

In a separate session, CTTI will also present findings to date for its Investigator Qualification project and Investigator Community recommendations. The presenter will examine whether current GCP training methods actually provide the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct quality clinical trials. Further, he will detail recently released recommendations that aim to strengthen the clinical trials investigator and study team community through better training and other approaches.

We hope you will join us in San Antonio, Texas, Nov. 5-8 as we share new insights into these noteworthy clinical trials topics.
