The COVID-19 crisis has been a challenging time for everyone involved in clinical trials research. Trials provide patients with the opportunity to access new treatments, therapies and technologies. New approaches to trial management have never been more important. Tele-oncology models of care have improved the delivery of specialist health care to rural and regional patients. Teletrials are an innovative patient centred model of care that builds on existing tele-oncology models. Teletrials aim to develop collaboration and networking between regional/rural and metropolitan centres, and between tertiary centres within the same metropolitan setting, to enhance engagement in research activity, increase patient recruitment, reduce disparity in cancer outcomes for geographically dispersed populations, build clinical trial capacity and provide trial related training. 

The concept and uptake of Teletrials is gathering momentum. Sharing strategies on how Teletrials can be implemented is an important step towards the routine inclusion of Teletrials in a site research portfolio.
