Continuing trials during COVID-19 by bringing the trial to the patient’s home

In this one-hour Lunch & Learn webinar Dr. Andrea Zobel, Global Head of the Parexel® Academy, will talk about the new challenges clinical trials are facing during the corona crisis. How can we continue to run trials during the COVID-19 pandemic in accordance with GCP and without compromising patient safety? One very effective solution is to conduct clinical trials in the patient’s home so that study participants are not exposed to possible infection. We take you through both the regulatory guidelines and practical considerations to show how clinical trials can be brought to the patient.
