The DIA 2021 Global Annual Meeting pushes beyond walls and borders. It is collaboration without boundaries, and we want you to join us and play a key role in building the framework of the future—making connections, gaining skills and insights, and advancing science to improve global health.

Post COVID: Sites Evolving Role in the Clinical Trial Ecosystem

Following COVID-19, there is a changing role for Sites in the decision-making framework for the selection, implementation, and use of various technologies for clinical trial execution. We will discuss how Sponsors, CROs and Sites can move forward.

Learning Objectives:

Review the rapid response working group findings as it related to site execution and monitoring during the COVID-pandemic; Discuss how COVID-19 impacted traditional clinical trial execution decision making from dictating to sites how to conduct the research, to including/listening to sites for appropriate next steps; Identify how technology adoption in clinical trial execution will be decided upon.
