Patient Perspectives to Improve Retention with eConsent

Presented by

Andrew Mackinnon, Digital Trial Operations Lead, Medable

About this talk

With Tufts reporting that the average number of patient dropouts for clinical trials remains near 30%, it is clear that there is still much to be done towards improving retention¹. One of the biggest drivers in keeping patients enrolled is the consent process. Traditional informed consent forms are frequently cited as confusing, leaving patients unsure of what their trial will require of them². In order to improve the process, we must meet patients on their own terms and find new ways to educate and engage them. At Medable, we use our Patient Advisory Council (PAC) to review our own clinical trial technology and best practices, helping ensure patients leave the consent process truly informed. Join Medable and key PAC members as we discuss common challenges faced by patients looking to participate in clinical trials. We will explore how a patient-first approach to informed consent can improve patient education, engagement, and comprehension, ultimately improving retention. Attendees will learn about: 1. The challenges of understanding consent information 2. Ideas on how to design the ICF and patient consent process to be patient-centric 3. Considerations in offering the choice of in-person or remote consent 4. Best practices in incorporating technology to increase engagement and comprehension *Sources: ¹Applied Clinical Trials.
