You’ll explore the key tools for recruitment and retention, how they are used and their overall advantages and limitations.

Develop an understanding of what digital tools are

You’ll firstly develop an understanding of what digital tools are and how they are used within the context of clinical trials.

You’ll then evaluate examples of digital tools that have been used for recruitment and retention of participants within clinical trials.

Identify ways in which digital tools could be used to support clinical trials

You’ll then identify the ways in which digital tools can be used to support clinical trials, and will explore the evidence for the effectiveness of digital tools.

You’ll then discuss the aspects that a researcher would need to consider if they intend to use one of these tools, and identify useful further information to discover further.

Learn with clinical trial experts from the University of Southampton

Throughout the duration of the course, you’ll be under the guidance of Jacqui Nuttall, Head of Trial Management in the Southampton Clinical Trials Unit, and Giorgos Dritsakis, a trial manager and lead researcher in the same unit.

The course will draw heavily on research findings from an NIHR-funded (National Institute for Health Research) project on research using technology in clinical trials. The team has an internationally-recognised reputation in understanding the development of successful clinical trials, and you’ll be able to engage with stakeholders throughout the process.
