“One of the biggest problems our industry faces is ensuring patients develop trust and feel satisfied with their clinical trial experience,” said Delente. “Research studies consistently show that not properly understanding consent documents leads to incorrect expectations that have a profound negative impact on patient satisfaction and ultimately retention rates. Electronic informed consent has been proven to solve these challenges, yet some study teams have been hesitant to adopt the technology due to understandable but inaccurate assumptions and myths. In this webinar, I will present common misconceptions and present facts and strategies based on real experience with top-10 pharmaceutical companies so attendees can get the facts and make up their own minds whether eConsent is right for them, for their sites, and most importantly for their patients worldwide.”

Delente has worked in the academic, medical and scientific communities for over 20 years, designing and developing award-winning educational portals and tools for healthcare and science. Delente co-founded SecureConsent, which DrugDev acquired in 2016 to integrate its groundbreaking mobile eConsent technology into the DrugDev Spark™ clinical operations suite.
