In the rapidly evolving landscape of clinical trials, technology continues to reshape and optimise various aspects of the research process. One area where digital innovation has made significant strides is in the realm of electronic consent, or e-consent. This approach to obtaining participant consent leverages the power of digital platforms to streamline and enhance the enrollment experience. By eliminating cumbersome paper-based processes, e-consent makes the consent process more efficient, accessible, and user-friendly. Participants can conveniently review and provide consent remotely, overcoming geographical barriers and expanding the reach of clinical trials. Additionally, interactive features and multimedia elements incorporated in e-consent platforms foster better participant comprehension, empowering individuals to make informed decisions about their participation.
