Clinical Trials from a Study Site Perspective
The conduct of clinical research requires effective working relationships between the study sites that execute clinical trials and the sponsors that design the trials and provide product for testing. With much riding on study outcomes, understanding what happens behind the scenes may help you design more effective trials. This month’s discussion will explore some of the bigger technical challenges to running a clinical research site, including:
• Types of clinical trials, sponsors and study sites
• Staffing/Workforce requirements, needs, and challenges
• Managing study site and sponsor expectations
• Role of an IRB
• Subject recruitment, screening, informed consent and enrollment
• Managing costs
