Archive: Clinical Trial Start-Up: Using a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for Effective Planning

Course #: BI13485
May 23, 2019

Course Description

A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) defines the work, tasks, assignments, and timelines for work to be completed. This web seminar identifies how WBS aids team members involved in study start-up from the sponsor/CRO and investigative site to address clinical trial start-up challenges once an investigative site has been selected. Recommendations on how sponsors/ CROs and investigative sites work collectively to improve turnaround times in clinical trial start-up are addressed, including IRB/IEC approval, clinical trial agreements, and how site initiation visits are mapped out using a WBS. Case studies, schematics, handouts, and tools will be provided.
