Moving Clinical Trials Forward in a Post Covid-19 World

  • by

Clinical trials faced the unknown a year ago when the global Covid-19 pandemic began. Covid-19 has forever changed how clinical trials operate, and research will continue to adapt accordingly. Despite the obstacles, Pacific Clinical Research Network (PCRN) is moving forward in a post-Covid-19 world. PCRN has remained open and recruiting throughout the pandemic, equipped with the staff and experience to meet your trials’ goals. 

Covid-19 caused thousands of trials to be paused or abandoned globally. Australia and New Zealand’s decisive response has enabled clinical trials to be largely unaffected. Overall, cases and deaths remain low compared to other areas of the world.

•          Australia: Approximately 28,930 cases and 909 Covid-19 deaths

•          New Zealand: Approximately 2,357 cases and 26 Covid-19 deaths

•          United Kingdom: Approximately 4.12 million cases and 121,000 Covid-19 deaths

•          United States: Approximately 28.2 million cases and 500,000 Covid-19 deaths

*Numbers reflect approximate totals as of Monday, February 22, 2021.

Moving Forward

There is significant uncertainty as Covid-19 continues to evolve and mutate in many parts of the world. Australia and New Zealand continue to be feasible locations for ongoing clinical trial studies, due to their strict policies and travel restrictions. Many areas face overwhelmed health systems, but that is not the case for Australia and New Zealand. Sites have remained opened and operating throughout the pandemic.
