From the patient perspective, consent discussions for a CID trial will likely require more time and additional supporting materials to ensure the patient is fully aware of what taking part would look like for them based on a variety of scenarios covered under the master protocol.
Site staff need to be supported to address an increased number of questions from patients that will inevitably arise due to the complexity of the master protocols. Providing an even longer consent form is not the solution and so sponsors need to consider visual, video, and other formats to ensure the patient is truly informed.
Here at Longboat, we specialize in supporting all trial stakeholders (including site staff, patients & caregivers, and study teams) to compliantly and confidently conduct trials. If you are thinking about executing a CID study, talk to us about how we can streamline the conduct of your study with practical technology solutions that reduce the site and patient burden.
