Clinical Trial Management Resources

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, most hospitals have halted all non-emergency visits, greatly affecting the conduct of clinical trials. Below are links to both Health Canada and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance on the management of clinical trials during this time, as well as various Canadian research organizations. This post will be updated as more resources come to our attention.

We are working to collect a list of trial resources to help trialists overcome challenges and keep their research programs moving forward. If you have had success or suggestions that you can share, please email amurdoch@cansolveckd.ca.
