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.
During the course of teaching at my CRA Academy, I realized that many people who are not as familiar with the clinical research industry were getting confused about drug accountability when it comes to clinical trials. In this video, I break down the most important aspects of clinical trial investigational product drug accountability.
It's actually not that difficult. If you have a brand new clinical research site, finding an experienced clinical research study coordinator is probably your best option. This is especially the case if you, the site owner, does not have any experience. Often times, experienced study coordinators may feel under appreciated at their current place of employment, or perhaps it is a clinic that rewards their good work with more work. Whatever the case may be, you can usually find a good study coordinator without much effort. In this video I describe some strategies.
One of the most frequent questions I receive from my startup clinical research clients involve Investigator Meetings. What occurs at these Investigator Meetings? Are they mandatory to attend? Who typically goes?, etc. Hope this video can help some others out there who are asking these same questions.
I have owned and operated numerous clinical research sites since roughly 2005. To me it has been quite a learning process as I have hired, trained, retained, fired, partnered with and promoted clinical research study coordinators. In this video I do my best to give a summary of what traits I think you should look for in your next study coordinator. Leave your comments below please!
