Course Description
The study start-up process is multi-faceted, cross-functional, and increasingly global, requiring numerous simultaneous activities across growing internal and external teams. A notorious bottleneck in starting trials, one of the causes of delays is inefficient collaboration between sponsors/CROs and key partners – namely investigative sites. Transforming study start-up requires a paradigm shift from a customer-vendor model towards strategic partnerships – wherein sites are no longer treated as commodities – so that all parties work together seamlessly from the beginning toward meeting mutual goals.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand how sites can leverage study start-up technology to improve communications and transparent operations with sponsors/CROs;
  2. Establishing a two-way dialogue – have a voice in how technology is utilized and deployed by sponsors/CROs;
  3. Understand considerations for assessing the fit between sites and sponsors/CROs, and how sites are rated in terms of performance.
