10-Hour Clinical Trial Start-Up Series
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.
