Virtual ACRP 2020, Part II – Technology & Future Trends Track Replay

This package is a replay of the ACRP 2020 Virtual, Part II Program.  It includes the following sessions:

  • Square Peg in a Round Hole: Remote Trial Innovation During a Pandemic

Learn how one CRO created a compliant trial design amidst a pandemic and continuously updated guidance. The session will provide insight for all clinical research professionals on a truly remarkable circumstance and never seen before timelines that may transform the future of trial design. Speaker: Jessica Thurmond, ACRP-CP, Clinical Trials Manager, Clinipace

  • Welcoming Technology into the World of Clinical Trials

100% virtual, or “site-less’, trials are entering the clinical research marketplace. Is the site community aware? Site sustainability hinges on sites’ awareness of this movement and their commitment to growing with the future of clinical research. This session will provide site staff with a high-level overview of what 100% virtual trials are, outline the difference between “site-less” trials and virtual or hybrid trials, and identify tools that sites can utilize when promoting their organization as the better, more desirable alternative. Attendees will be equipped with the knowledge and solutions needed to remain a strong, forward-thinking and sustainable site. Speakers: Amanda Rangel, MS, CCRC, VP of Business Development, VirTrial; Kim Kundert, RN, BSN, VP of Operations, VirTrial

  • Hang Ten: How to Surf the Wave of New Technology Without Wiping Out

Conducting clinical trials is a lot of work and sponsors, sites, and CROs are constantly looking to identify new technology solutions (e.g. EHR, CTMS, eTMF, ePRO) that can help run more efficient clinical trials (e.g. patient identification, collection of data, timelines for study completion, operational improvements) . Identifying and implementing new technology can be a daunting task, with how to approach the process, cost implications, unexpected delays, and change management risks to user acceptance. In this session, we will tackle tips for identifying the right technology to solve your problem, configuration to meet your needs, user implementation, and evaluation to ensure the technology continues to support your clinical trial. We’ll provide you with a toolkit for technology rollout success. Speakers: Rachel Berry, RN, MSN, Senior Director, Operations, Rho; Nick Poulson, PhD, Project Lead, Rho; Katharine York, BS, Senior Clinical Systems Analyst, Rho

  • A Plain English Description of Emerging Technology and How It May Contribute To Research

New technology is being introduced to clinical research operations so rapidly that it seems like a daily occurrence. At the same time, the roles of clinical researchers are changing as these tools are put into place. Some simplifying the workload, others seemingly making it more complex. This session will look at these trends and use a “crystal ball” to tell us the expectations of clinical researchers in the future. Speaker: David Vulcano, LCSW, MBA, CIP, RAC, Vice President, Research Compliance & Integrity HCA Healthcare
