Clinical Trials that make use of digital innovations and other related methods to make them more accessible to participants. By moving clinical trial activities to the participant’s home or to other local settings this minimises or eliminates physical visits to a clinical trial centre. NB the term decentralised trial includes hybrid trials that use only limited remote methods in combination with more conventional site-based methods as well as fully “virtual” or “digital” trials where there may be no direct interaction between study personnel and participants.
NB. Decentralised clinical trial (DCT) is to be used in preference to Remote decentralised clinical trial (RDCT) (Source: Trials@Home Executive Board October 2021)
