The implementation of new solutions to share electronically the eCRF PDFs with sites have brought up new considerations and challenges to this process.
We would like everyone to share their experiences on how the process has been implemented, as well as the challenges experienced. This will be a group discussion on the recommendations to make this process as straight forward as possible for Sites and Sponsors, while complying with requirements.
Facilitated by Carmen Jiménez, Eli Lilly
In July 2020, EMA released a new Q&A to provide further expectations on continuous oversight and frequency of investigators’ signature collection on eCRF data reported to the sponsor. Prior to filing a marketing authorization application, all eCRF data should be signed and dated. But also important data such as that related to reporting of SAEs, adjudication of important events and endpoint data, DSMB review, should be signed off in a timely manner. In addition, a timely review and sign-off of data that are entered directly into the CRF as source is particularly important.
The intent of this webinar is to identify if there are new challenges, and if any – to proceed with an update to the eCF best practices on investigator signatures document that was released in 2017.
Presenter: Dr. Jules Mitchel, Target Health
About this Topic: Clearly, the implementation of traditional clinical research studies as well as executing COVID-19 studies themselves. have been dramatically impacted by global COVID-19 pandemic. Since showing up at clinical sites in general is becoming less feasible, clinical research must adapt. While there are many exciting ideas to execute virtual and remote studies, the focus still needs to be on the assurances that 1. the clinical sites understand and are following the protocol; 2. the data can and are being entered and reviewed in “real time,” 3. there are the “absence of errors that matter” and 4. the “data are fit for purpose.” This session will showcase several studies using the Target Health web-based application, with Informed Consent fully integrated with real time direct data capture, real time reports, online monitoring reports and safety reporting.

Mobility is an important marker of health, key to our independence, and a major driver for quality of life. Many aspects of how we walk can be easily measured and quantified in a well-equipped scientific or clinical laboratory, but this ‘artificial snapshot in time’ is a poor indicator of how well we move about in the real world. Recent advances in digital technologies have opened the door to monitoring mobility 24/7 but going beyond the number of steps or the vigour of moving has shown remarkably difficult. Yet, accurate assessment of daily life mobility in clinical trials and patient treatment is necessary for improved and more personalised care, but what is required to get there?
We are pleased to announce the details of our next Virtual Global Workshop on 12-16 October 2020 (which replaces our planned Global Workshop in Dublin which is postponed until 2021). The virtual workshop will include a mix of global and regional events and is open to participants from any member company in any region.
Our last virtual workshop was a great success and this one will be even better. We have made sure that sessions are as convenient as possible for the different timezones across the world by limiting the duration of global sessions and offering more regional sessions. Learning from each other is what we do best and we will be introducing a number of ways to increase interactivity during the workshop (although nothing can replace the networking and comeraderie of an eCF face-to-face meeting!).
