COVID-19 is an unprecedented challenge for clinical research
Most of us are scrambling to adhere to newly-released policies limiting “non-essential” face-to-face interactions, including those with our study participants. These are chaotic times. New rules and recommendations are changing at a moment’s notice. We must be proactive, adherent to the principles that serve our patients now while preparing for future disruptions. The mHealth Research Core is committed to sharing guidance and best practices for researchers.
The NIH is deeply concerned for the health and safety of people involved in NIH research, and about the effects on the biomedical enterprise in the areas affected by the HHS declared public health emergency for COVID-19. Due to the potential exceptional impact, the NIH created a collection of guidance and resources.
