COVID-19 outbreak has challenged preparedness and response capacities of the health systems all over the world, putting national health care systems under pressure. Despite being a little bit behind the recruitment schedule, due to the pandemic, the EMPIRICAL consortium has now recruited patients.
During the first year of the project, all partners have demonstrated expertise and capability to collaborate in order to ensure the necessary flexibility, adapting protocols and monitoring, simplifying study procedures, and other changes to deal with this extraordinary situation. At the enrolling sites, a successful start of the trial has been achieved by having enough research staff involved in the trial, by providing appropriate clinical trial facilities, and most importantly by maintaining a close relationship between all partners.
