The integrated rater experience: innovations in eLearning for rater training, eSource data capture and smarter central review

A principal challenge in CNS clinical trials are the subjective assessments prone to rater bias and variability that can cause failed or inconclusive trials. Even the most rigorous rater training programs and scientific oversight are not enough when they remain siloed and unconnected. But when learning management, data capture and central review are integrated and empowered by innovative fit-for-purpose technologies designed by clinical experts, dramatic improvements in endpoint reliability and rater-centricity are achieved.

Hear from adult learning experts on "the science of learning" and how rater training programs can be radically improved to reach beyond the investigator meeting for on-demand access to rich, contextual, study- and population-specific rater guidance when and where it's needed most. The result: more standardized administration, more reliable endpoints.

You’ll also learn how technology enabled workflows such as tablet-base eSource solutions can be used to ensure raters administer assessments correctly and consistently to improve data quality and strengthen study signal. And finally, you’ll learn how electronic source data capture and fit-for-purpose review portals and dashboarding can enhance the effectiveness of central monitoring programs of CNS scales compared to traditional paper source documents – a clinical science perspective on important design considerations.
