Friday, October 7th:

10:30 am – 11:30 am
Master Workshop: Make DCTs Work For Your Site
Featured Speaker: Karri Venn, COO/President at Centricity Research
Decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) have become the buzzword of the clinical trial landscape. CTTI defines DCTs as those in which some or all study assessments or visits are conducted at locations other than the investigator site via any of the following DCT elements: tele-visits; mobile or local healthcare providers, including local labs and imaging centers; and home delivery of investigational products. With data collection happening in locations other than the traditional brick-and-mortar site, the role of the site is changing. In this workshop, you will learn how you can turn this into a plus and a strength making you the site of choice for sponsors in DCTs.
