Course Description

Study start-up and initiation is one of the busiest times in the research study process. As sponsors and Contract Research Organizations (CROs) are faced with a tight timeline to get all sites up and running — critical elements of the training and communication process are often overlooked. This web seminar will focus on the steps that need to be taken to ensure start-up success at both the sponsor and site level, allow for proactive preparation, reduce the study learning curve, and eliminate study deviations and errors.
