|Title of abstract||Wearables data and clinical trials: insights and learnings from a feasibility study|
Despite the hype surrounding consumer-grade wearable technology in healthcare, the role of patient-generated data alongside traditionally collected data on a clinical trial is not fully understood. Ongoing clinical trials that utilise consumer-grade devices, specifically activity trackers, focus on their use as an intervention for example in behavioural studies or as an endpoint measure. There is limited evidence of how data from such devices might be used more generally together with traditionally collected trial data.
|First learning objective||Appreciate the potential for different wearables on clinical trials and the sort of data generated|
|Second learning objective||Understand some of the challenges around wearables and clinical trials|
|Third learning objective||Realise ways in which wearable data could be used to provide meaningful insights on a clinical trial|
|Job title||Head of Data Science|
