Tuesday, January 31, 2023 at 1:00 PM ET
When it comes to in-person healthcare research, many are still unsure if face-to-face research can be safely conducted. Not only have safety precautions been implemented, they have been tested and proven effective.
In this webinar we’ll discuss what we’ve learned, new processes and technologies to ensure safety and efficacy, and where we’re headed.
Representatives from L&E Research, Emergo by UL, and the American Institutes for Research will discuss challenges the healthcare research industry faced when struck with a global pandemic. Our panel of experts includes: Stephanie Larsen, board-certified human factors professional, providing services to the medical device, pharmaceutical, and therapeutic device industries; Amy Lin, Research Associate serving as the Cognitive Testing Lead to translate clinical effectiveness research into summarized abstracts to improve final written products; and L&E Research’s April Leonard, who brings over 12 years of clinical experience as a Registered Nurse, and nearly 10 years in Qualitative Healthcare recruitment; discussion to be led by L&E Research’s Senior Client Solutions Manager, Kelli Hammock.
During this webinar, we will discuss:
- What healthcare researchers did to pivot their process and adapt to the changing research landscape
- What companies do to ensure in-person healthcare research is conducted safely when remote methodologies are incompatible with the research objective
- Technologies and platforms that prove most beneficial to remote healthcare research when usability testing is necessary
- Remote methodologies most useful in accomplishing research goals
