Enhancing patient-centric outcome measures and clinical trials with Digital Health Technologies, 8-9 November 2022 (online)

Building on the great momentum in Europe, with initiatives such as ACT-EU or the EMA Regulatory Science Research needs, and advances in IMI projects such as IDEA-FAST or Mobilise-D, EFPIA is organising a multistakeholder workshop on the use of Digital Health Technologies (DHTs) in drug development, with a focus on digital data including digital endpoints. This workshop will offer an opportunity to discuss how to optimise DHTs development, evidence generation for validation/qualification, and regulatory pathways, and to clarify some of the challenges faced so far.

To be held virtually on 8-9 November 2022, the workshop seeks to build a roadmap for enabling the use of DHTs in drug development in Europe and beyond. It will be designed with plenary sessions and interactive breakout sessions to integrate views and expectations of the various stakeholders, and to share learnings and solutions.

This event is free to join. Register now to join the conversation.

EMA ACT EU multi-stakeholder meeting on decentralised clinical trials, 4 October, Amsterdam (online)

The Accelerating Clinical Trials in the EU (ACT EU) programme is hosting a multi-stakeholder workshop on decentralised clinical trials (DCTs) on behalf of the EU DCT project, bringing together participants from all areas of the research community to share perspectives on this type of clinical trials.

During the workshop, the EU DCT project group will present the work of the European medicines regulatory network on decentralised clinical trials collaboration, including the planned publication of a recommendation paper on the use of decentralised elements in clinical trials in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The onsite workshop is open to invited participants only, but the workshop’s plenary sessions will be broadcast live on this website. Any interested party can follow this broadcast. A video recording of the plenary session is made available after the event. Processing and publication of the video recording typically take up to 60 days.

The Mobile Technologies in Clinical Trials Summit, 12 September, Boston

The Mobile Technologies in Clinical Trials Summit, taking place September 12th, Boston is designed for digital R&D professionals to get the best access to implementation strategies for applying mobile/digital tools to connect and empower patients, and obtain better outcomes in drug development/clinical research. Each year, we bring forward the latest experience-based case studies while presenting fresh ideas to advance fit for purpose, adoption and scale of remote digital solutions.

Kim Hawkins (Sanofi) joined the “REPORTING ON MOBILE/DIGITAL IMPLEMENTATION INITIATIVES AND DEMONSTRATING IMPACT” track to reflect on Trials@Home with a focus on the mobile/digital tools that will support RADIAL, and how they will impact/empower the patient.

SCOPE Europe

20-21 April, Barcelona

IMI Trials@Home project aims to reshape clinical trial design, conduct and operations, by developing and piloting standards, recommendations, and tools for the definition and operationalisation of decentralised clinical trials in Europe. In its pilot study, RADIAL, we work with patients to assess and evaluate preferences and satisfaction around the concept of DCTs.

On 20 April at 10.15, Tanja Keiper (MERCK), Bart Lagerwaard (UMCU) and Maartje Roskams (IDF Europe) introduced the RADIAL trial and showed how we will approach questions on patient satisfaction on conventional compared to hybrid and DCT trial models, including specific patient-facing technologies.

DIA Europe

29-31 March, Brussels

29-31 March DIA Europe 2022 will take place in Brussels. The Trials@Home consortium is well-represented and there will be a dedicated “Decentralized Clinical Trials” poster session, during which research conducted by, amongst others, the EAGLE group will be presented; ‘the mock ethics review’ will be presented by Tessa van Rijssel and ‘the interview study with regulators’ will be presented by Amos de Jong. If you are planning on going to DIA Europe 2022, you are cordially invited to attend this session! Also, it may be a nice opportunity to meet some of the EAGLE colleagues in-person. 

The session (#P01-L Live Oral Poster Presentations) will take place on Tuesday 29 March from 13.00-13.45 at the Regulatory Science Hub.  

International Rare Disease Showcase

February 3, 2022 – online

At Beacon’s International Rare Disease Showcase, Trials@Home joined the Main Stage session on ‘The road to treatment: collaboration and innovation driving new rare therapies’. Here, Trials@Home presented about decentralised clinical trials to the conference’s 430 attendees, piloting the RADIAL study, and how this can benefit the field of rare diseases.

DTRA Inaugural Annual Meeting

November 10-13, 2021

Trials@Home will participate in a panel session during the DTRA Annual Meeting on the DCT-related work of other initiatives.  This panel is scheduled for Friday November 12th 9am ET at the Boston Encore.

Confirmed Speakers from the following critical initiatives:

  • TransCelerate: Hassan Kadhim (BMS)
  • IMI Trials@Home: Kimberly Hawkins (Sanofi)
  • CTTI: Reem Yunis (Medable)
  • ACRO: Kushal Gohil (Parexel)
  • SCRS: Casey Orvin (CenExel)

This session will be a conversation facilitated by Amir Kalali and Craig Lipset. Goal of the session will be: (1) ensure the diverse DCT leaders across DTRA are aware of the important work of other related initiatives and (2) begin to explore opportunities for “meta-collaboration” across initiatives where appropriate.  The latter point builds on a regular cadence of leadership meetings DTRA has been holding with each initiative over the course of 2021 to ensure transparency and the potential for hand-offs.

DTRA is looking forward to a safe and rewarding opportunity to learn, network, and advance work together.  Those joining in-person will be vaccine-verified with on-site antigen testing; all content will be streamed online to ensure learning opportunities are broadly accessible.
