INVESTIGATORS MEETING, TORONTO, OCTOBER 2019
The first annual PRO-ACTIVE Investigators’ Meeting was hosted in Toronto in October 2019. This was the first opportunity of its kind for site leadership and their teams to all come together and meet with the Co-PIs and the engagement leads, to share lessons learned and current challenges across all sites. As part of this meeting, each site also engaged in discussions brainstorming how best to address their site’s unique challenges in areas of recruitment, retention and data fidelity, and had the opportunity to review engagement stakeholder recommendations as a guide to address their challenges.
