Course Description

Successful and timely clinical trial start-up is key for sponsors, CROs and investigative sites. Too often, clinical trial start-up is challenged by delays in investigator selection, Institutional Review Board (IRB)/Ethics Committee (EC) budget approvals, or the discovery that once a site is initiated, the investigator/site indicates the protocol is not feasible due to lack of subjects. This online 10-Hour Clinical Trial Start-Up Series will address how to overcome challenges encountered in clinical trial start-up from understanding protocol requirements and risks, exploring methods to improve the investigator/site understanding of eligibility criteria, use of a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) to help drive timely IRB/EC and Clinical Trial Agreement (CTA)/budget approvals, and tools and techniques for more engaging/ interactive site qualification and initiation visits. Case studies, handouts, and tools will be provided for immediate implementation to address your start-up needs.

Prior to the start of the course, participants will receive their login credentials and links to access and download the many class resources and class meeting links. Upon course completion, participants will be provided training certificates. In order to receive accreditation CEUs, participants are required to pass both a mid-term and final exam. Upon completion of the exams, CEU certificates will be provided.
