Presentation Title

State-of-the-art Remote Consent : Can We Go Further?

Worldwide, 80% of the general population is receptive to clinical research yet 90% of trials fail to recruit the target number of participants within the planned time. Can remote consent change this? Remote informed consent process can be conducted via telephone, video call, online, or other methods. Remote consent helps not only minimize non-essential contact but as well facilitate screening procedures, recruitment processes, increase flexibility, convenience, and timeliness, remove geographic barriers, amongst many benefits for potential research participants and investigators. Are we fully exploiting those? Should we go further in use of remote consent? We will explore both strengths and limitations of remote consent and whether we can go further.
