Want to increase enrollment, retain more participants, reduce compliance risk and speed your product to market? Heck, yes!

As consent forms get longer and more complex, participant enrollment and retention rates fall.

Innovative pharma/device sponsors and CROs have started making consent forms more visual, not just lines of text.

This event will give attendees straightforward advice and guidance. Attendees will learn the benefits of e-consenting, which include:

  • How a more visual format overcomes language and literacy barriers
  • Why electronic consent makes data gathering and remote monitoring easier on sponsors and subjects
  • How version control and audit trails are easier to maintain and reduces the risk of non-compliance
  • Why e-consenting speeds up trial enrollment and gets products to market faster

Join clinical trial specialists Dr. Susan Brink and Sherri Bracy in this 90-minute webinar, as they answer these questions:

  • What should you ask your IRB when initiating e-consent — how will they view the process and will it affect trial approval and monitoring?
  • How does a site/CRO or sponsor determine which e-consent application is the best fit for their organization?
  • What are the features that every e-consent application must have (e.g., revision control, audit trails)?
  • Tips and tricks for monitoring and auditing e-consents
  • Tales from the trenches — what are some of the common impacts an e-system has on the IRB process?

Register today.

You and your colleagues will participate from the comfort of your own office, conference room or auditorium. No planes, no hotels, no precious time away from work and family — just 90 minutes of solid, interactive learning via the Web.

Ask your questions in real time via email or through the web-based console. You'll get answers back by the time the session ends.
