An important part of the meeting was the presentation on Work Package progress. The draft recommendations with best practices for Decentralised Clinical Trials (DCTs) are still standing today but WP BEST is working on updating this through follow-up interviews and new case studies. WP TECH and WP PILOT and WP EAGLE are working hard on preparations for RADIAL, the Trials@Home proof-of-concept study. RADIAL updates will be discussed in more detail in the next section. Besides this, WP PILOT is executing a Patient Preference Study for which they are currently setting up focus groups in various EU countries, as well as a Digital Literacy study and a Physical Examination project. WP EAGLE is focusing on the regulatory and ethical aspects of DCTs. WP CODE is continuing their work on communication and dissemination and hosted a session at this meeting on the importance and practicalities around the project’s communication. WP PROMS is responsible for project management and is also working on the sustainability plan for Trials@Home.
Trials@Home was the main topic in more than 25 presentations during the past year, with five new published manuscripts. The manuscripts can be accessed via https://trialsathome.com/peer-reviews-and-research-outputs/. And you can find the posters here: https://trialsathome.com/posters/
