Course Description

Investigator selection is one of the most critical tasks facing clinical research professionals in today’s compliance-driven environment. Yet the task is often performed with inadequate time and resources by individuals who are facing multiple competing projects and timelines. How can you better ensure the identification of the best qualified investigator candidates to ensure overall study success? By developing a strategy for an investigator selection process which includes the following: A detailed and study-specific investigator profile, a truly effective site feasibility questionnaire, leveraging existing staff members’ unique skill sets, and strategies for maximizing the value of site evaluation/selection visits.
