Creating an Easier Consent Process that Saves Time, Reduces Costs, and Boosts Efficiency

Sponsors are responsible to ensure proper consenting of subjects at clinical research sites prior to study procedures happening. It is a challenge to perform this in a timely manner while also ensuring human subject protection and data integrity. (Inadequate consent is still in the top 5 health authority site inspection findings globally!) Even in the landscape of risk-based monitoring and reduced onsite visits, monitoring informed consent still requires primarily onsite visits by sponsor monitors. This has not been effective or efficient for the industry to reduce informed consent issues and manage risks.

During this webinar, informed consent experts with decades of hands-on monitoring experience discuss the challenges they’ve encountered and how to overcome them with the integration of eConsent. How can eConsent improve the efficiencies of monitoring informed consent and decrease the risk of consent issues at site to better support human subject protection and data integrity?

Electronic Informed Consent (eConsent) enables monitors to be more efficient, remotely review consent, track progress at sites, prioritize visits and more. But how does using an eConsent better support monitoring? How does eConsent integration impact the sponsor / CRO monitoring processes, monitoring plans, communication with sites, report writing, and other systems from qualification visits to close-out visits?

How can monitors and CRAs achieve all of this with eConsent? Register for our webinar, “Monitoring Considerations for Clinical Trials Using eConsent: Creating an Easier Consent Process that Saves Time, Reduces Costs, and Boosts Efficiency,” to learn more about how to optimize your informed consent process. We hope to see you there!
