Canadian Trial Forge webinar: Your study was stopped due to COVID-19– Practical considerations
Speaker: Michelle Kho and Shaun Treweek
This will be the first Trial Forge webinar from the McMaster Trial Forge Centre. The general outline will be:
- Many universities, including McMaster stopped new enrolments to all ongoing clinical research studies, unless COVID-19 related. Trialists and research coordinators were forced to make many pragmatic decisions about how to manage participants already enrolled in their studies. Participant retention concerns come to the forefront.
- Intro to Trial Forge, PRIORITY 1, and PRIORITY 2. Discuss retention evidence and proposed next steps.
- Case report of CYCLE RCT, an international study of in-bed cycling, and actions by methods centre.
- Discussion, Q & A.
- Key take home points for researchers and research coordinators/ trial managers
