Ever wondered what a clinical research protocol synopsis actually consists of. In this long video we break down a typical protocol synopsis and discuss some of the key elements that most share.
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 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.
So you've just been assigned to a new clinical research protocol and haven't had a chance to familiarize yourself with all the finer details; what's a study coordinator or cra to do? No worries, your best friend will be the schedule of assessments. If you simply follow the schedule of assessments you will at least understand what procedures (and sometimes even their order) that need to occur at every visit. This by no means makes you an expert on the particular study, but you will at least know the basics. There is never a substitute for a deep understanding of any clinical research protocol.
