Since there are very few if any guidelines in the clinical research industry when it comes to social media study participant recruitment, I decided to make this video offering some practical advice on how I would handle certain scenarios. Always check with your own Institutional Review Board to be on the safe side.
Here is a video for all of the clinical research freelancers, independent contractors, and general consultants out there. A large percentage of the workforce in the clinical trials industry is made up of non employees. In this video we discuss ways that these particular individuals can generate more business for themselves.
In the clinical research industry, experience matters. In this video I share some strategies for new Principal Investigators or study coordinators on how they can legitimately beef up the experience on their CV's.
Patient recruitment is by far and away the biggest barrier for bringing new treatments and cures to the marketplace.
In my process of launching my own CRO startup, I have broken down what a CRO typically does into tiny manageable chunks that we can look into and learn from. New business models are created when inefficiencies are discovered in the previous ones. In fact, the inefficiencies of the drugmakers during the clinical trial process is precisely what paved the way for modern day CRO's. These days, the riches are in the niches as new inefficiencies emerge due to new technologies.
Many novice clinical researchers make this common mistake. What is it? You're just going to have to watch to find out! Here's a hint: it has to do with being able to screen patients immediately after your site's initiation visit.
In this webinar, Monica and myself discuss some patient recruitment strategies that any clinical research site could implement and put into practice today!
I have been receiving numerous emails regarding how we clinical researchers can improve our sales techniques. In this video I discuss some concepts that should be considered.
In this video, Chris and I pull back the curtain a bit on the overspending and quite frankly wasteful allocation of resources in clinical trials. Let me know your thoughts.
In an ideal world, when you are presenting a potential clinical study opportunity to a Principal Investigator, one would have the protocol or at least a slide deck available. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case and use entrepreneurs have to navigate around this dilemma. In this video I describe some strategies that I have used in the past and some that may potentially work for you.
If you've ever needed to get motivated, look no further than this video. Darshan Kulkarni and I discuss why clinical research professionals need to get better at sales, and also, how the sales process typically works in this industry.
I never understood why the idea that as business owners we are actually salespeople has never quite resonated with those of us in the clinical research industry. We are no different than any other industries in the sense that as owners, entrepreneurs, business development staff or even managers, it is our primary duty to be salespeople for our organizations.
In this video i discuss different ways that physicians can get involved in clinical research. Every individual situation is unique, but the great thing about the clinical research industry is that there are many possibilities.
In this video I go off on a semi rant, but one that I feel is necessary in many cases. If you are going to own your own clinical research site, there will be many challenging situations that will arise. It will always be easier to find reasons why you shouldn't do something, however, as an entrepreneur, it is your duty to yourself, your employees, and your patients to try to find solutions rather than emphasizing the problems at hand.
In this video, I answer a viewer's question on what separates an adverse event from a serious adverse event and when a Principal Investigator needs to report either in a clinical trial.
So many entrepreneurs, physicians, CRA's or CRC's who end up wanting to start their own clinical research site eventually want to look into the profit margins that are possible to generate in this industry. This video explains exactly what you can expect.
In this video I discuss how a clinical research site or any organization for that matter, should go about getting new physicians to join their companies. I also discuss the two biggest objectives that I get when personally going out to recruit doctors.
Social media is certainly creating an altogether new category for regulatory and IRB oversight. In this video I give my personal opinion of when utilizing tools like social media require IRB oversight. Let me know your thoughts.
In this video, I interviewed Luke Edington of DataPharm , Australia's oldest CRO. We discussed DIA 2016 conference which occurred in June 2016 and covered all of the trends and hot topics in the clinical research industry these days.
