As researchers and clinicians develop new medical products, they turn to clinical trials in humans to answer questions related to product safety, need, and efficacy. It is crucial that trial participants understand how clinical trial participation helps scientists answer these questions. One of the biggest drivers in keeping patients enrolled is the consent process. Unfortunately, traditional informed consent forms are frequently cited as confusing, leaving patients unsure of what their trial will require of them. With Tufts reporting in 2019 that the average number of patient dropouts for clinical trials increased by nearly 30%, it is clear that there is still much to be done towards improving patient retention.

In this roundtable discussion brought to you by Medable, experts from Medable are joined by patient advocates from the Medable Patient Caregiver Network (PCN) to discuss how a patient-first approach to informed consent improves patient education, engagement, and comprehension, and how eConsent forms help ensure patients leave the consent process truly informed.

Topics to be covered 

  • The challenges of understanding consent information
  • Ideas on how to design the ICF and patient consent process to be patient-centric
  • Considerations in offering the choice of in-person or remote consent
  • Best practices in incorporating technology to increase engagement and comprehension
