Digital versus digitised: common misconceptions about eConsent

20 July 2022

3:00pm

Learn about the common misconceptions surrounding eConsent, as well as the benefits they can realise through a digitally-enabled approach.

About this webinar

With today’s world centred around digital interaction, it may surprise you that a recent Medable poll found the informed consent process remains rooted in paper.

However, this reliance comes at a cost. Low enrolment, poor patient retention and issues around site compliance lead to audits, inspection findings and trial delays.

With Nature stating that almost 60 percent of clinical professionals expect eConsent adoption to continue post-COVID-19, it is clear the benefits behind digital consent have garnered trust.

So, why does adoption continue to increase, albeit slowly?

In this webinar attendees will learn about the common misconceptions surrounding eConsent, as well as the benefits they can realise through a digitally-enabled approach.

Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • The myths that continue to persist around eConsent
  • The difference between eConsent and eSignature
  • How to improve comprehension with patient-centric consent
  • How to use a digital consent management system to improve trial compliance, quality and oversight
