Patients are increasingly empowered with an awareness of their conditions and treatment options. The internet and search engines have provided patients with unprecedented access to information previously only held by health professionals. With this knowledge, patients often seek a level of interaction, explanations and general engagement in regular care that can be challenging. This session will discuss methods and strategies for the management of activities and communications involving patients in clinical trials.

Learning Objectives

Describe the challenges and opportunities when establishing greater patient centricity in clinical trials; Discuss how technologies will assist in the distributed management and monitoring of patient engagement including how such oversight will aid in improving compliance and data quality; Recognize the opportunities for direct-to-patient activities in clinical trials.
