Decentralised clinical trials

Decentralised clinical trials (DCTs) introduce a revolution in the clinical trial industry by enabling faster trial execution, delivering more representative and diverse datasets, and providing clinical trials that are easily accessible and convenient for participants to take part in.  

Denmark is moving full speed ahead to become a global DCT frontrunner. The close collaboration between authorities, clinicians, companies, and patients is key to success, and so is the proactive role of the Danish Medicines Agency, which launched a DCT guideline in 2021. Furthermore, political prioritisation and continuous investment underpins Denmark’s strong position within DCTs.
