      This question has been raised by one of our site P.Is who has queried “what lessons from COVID experience may have influenced Sponsors in the efficient running of clinical trials. With introduced changes to focus on what is most crucial of trial activities and relaxation of some of the trial procedures which are seen as less important is there discussions occurring about trial design of prospective studies to lower research costs and burden on patients, nurses and imaging/pathology etc?”
      I am unable to make comment on this from a site perspective and thought this forum may provide opportunity for response to site P.Is. Thanks

      This is such a great question! There is no doubt that COVID has forced us to examine many aspects of clinical work – and many of these changes may have positive impacts in future care. Do patients need to be seen so often? Do they need so many tests? can they be seen remotely more often? Can reviews be devolved to different professional groups? How can we make the elderly more computer literate?

      So the same should be true in the CT space? What ways of doing CT during COVID could we learn from and take forward? Do patients need to be seen so often? Can we simplify PIFs? Do we need to be so careful with AEs? can we do more on e-platforms?
