Learn everything you may not know in regards to the new updates to Good Clinical Practice that went into effect in the 4th quarter of 2016 in regards to the clinical trials industry.
The first thing you need when establishing a new clinical research site is having a Principal Investigator. In this video I discuss ways in which you can fairly partner with a physician in a clinical trial.
So you've got your first clinical trial, now what? Well, for starters, try not to screw things up too badly. In this video Chris and I share some common pitfalls that new clinical research site owners may encounter during their first study.
Every clinical research site has 3 stakeholders (or customers) that they need to keep happy:
-CRO's and Sponsors
2017 Clinical Research Forecast
To start 2017 off on the right foot, you most likely have several screenings lined up for your new studies (or even your first study!). In this video I discuss the most critical elements needed to have a successful screening visit.
In this video, Chris Sauber and I discuss what brand new clinical research centers can make on their first 2 studies. Please understand that every study is unique and these are just ballpark estimates.
This is a common mistake that many rookie clinical research sites make. Watch this video so you are not one of them!
In this video I talk to Monica (who just finished the CRA Academy) and we discussed an interesting topic that came out of one of the webinars: the 6 criteria that define a serious adverse event (SAE).
In one of our recent webinars, Chris and I discussed ways for clinical research sites to get better at negotiating their contracts and budgets. We share many actionable strategies that can and should get implemented at your clinical research site as soon as possible.
I have spoken to so many prospective clinical research site owners over the past several years and many, if not most, tend to overcomplicate things. In this video I give advice on what to worry about now and things you can worry about later.
One of the biggest issues that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been focused on lately has been the lack of Principal Investigator (PI) oversight in the clinical trials that they manage. In this video I suggest some ways that we in the industry can improve PI oversight.
2017 is looking to be a promising year for those of us research site owners in the clinical research industry. For established sites, the problem won't necessarily be getting more studies, the main issue will be motivating your clinical research coordinators to enroll subjects, enter data, answer queries, and all of the other millions of responsibilities that generally fall into a study coordinator's lap. In this video I discuss real and actionable strategies for motivating your study coordinators.
So many viewers want to get started in the clinical research industry either as study coordinators or as clinical research associates (CRA's). The problem is that most of these positions will not consider the candidate unless they have some prior clinical research experience to show on their resume. In this video I discuss several actionable strategies for how to go about doing this. Also, my CRA Academy trains candidates and provides them with experience through our internship program. Hope you can find some value here.
Experienced clinical research site owners understand that risks must be mitigated by having contingency plans in place. In this video I discuss some of the common trouble areas for clinical research entrepreneurs and where they should focus on having backup plans in place.
Today's video was a response to a viewer's question on how their clinical research site can determine whether they should take on a new clinical trial or not. As always, there are many variables that one may need to consider, some of which may not be in this video.
In this video I discuss what new clinical research site owners need to focus on. There are, of course, many other important items I have left out, however, these 3 basic items are what every new research clinic owner needs to keep in mind.
In this video I answer a question from a Clinical Research Associate (CRA) viewer that was curious about whether or not it was possible for them to open their own clinical research site. I discuss how this is not only possible, but done quite often.
Ever wondered what a database lock entails? Furthermore, are you like some of my CRA Academy students where you would like to get an actual clinical research study coordinator's perspective on what a database lock entails? If so, then you've come to the right blog post. I hope this video will help you better understand clinical trial database locks and what they entail.
