Presented on: June 20, 2023

Presented at: Virtual

Description: The MRCT Center and Medable convened a multi-stakeholder group to address ethical and regulatory opportunities and challenges related to Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCTs) and presented a joint webinar titled “Ethical Review of Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCTs): Tools, Resources & Best Practices” on June 20, 2023.

During the webinar, Dr. Barbara Bierer (MRCT Center) and Dr. Pam Tenaerts and Leanne Madre (Medable) presented guidance and tools organized around 12 key elements. These elements are grouped into three domains: People, Remote Data Collection, and Data Oversight. The aim is to provide IRBs, ethics committees (ECs), and sponsors with the necessary framework, tools, and recommendations for conducting ethical reviews. Robert Ramanchuk provided insights into the real-world, practical implications of the recommendations.
