The African Academy of Sciences (AAS) is establishing a Clinical Trials Community to enable trial sites to promote expertise, experience and capacity. Over the next three months, we are consulting stakeholders in clinical trials on how to shape the platform.
We have engaged IPS Oxford, experts in designing and developing digital platforms to lead the process. On 1 - 2 October 2019 we have organised a workshop with esteemed experts of the Clinical Trials community from across Africa to be held at the Ifakara Health Institute.
Objective: The goal is to gather a comprehensive and detailed set of user insights and requirements to feed into the design and development of the clinical trials community platform such that it fully meets the immediate and long-term needs of the clinical trialists and key stakeholders.
Method: In a live and dynamic discussion group, we will probe concepts, identify barriers, drivers and opportunities using a guiding set of questions.
