The Hidden Costs of Conducting Clinical Trials at the Site: Budgeting for Subject Activities and Total Study Budgeting

$79.00 (Non-Member Price)
$0.00 (SCRS members – Included as member benefit, no additional cost)

Course Description: In today’s environment of increasing regulatory compliance, decreasing economics, and growing competition, investigative sites are faced with greater and more complex site management objectives that impact the study budget. Often sites are being asked to assume more and more tasks without adequate remuneration. As a result, sites are generating modest to no operating profits as they absorb these “hidden costs” of conducting and providing quality research. This presentation is being offered as a preview of a 5-part series that SCRS will give in winter 2018.

This presentation will present a pricing case study on a per-subject budget presented to a site, and the challenges that sites face when using that budget to cover all of the costs of conducting that trial. Learning Opportunities

  1. Case studies enhance participants’ understanding and application of the new knowledge they gain.
  2. Tools and techniques will be provided to immediately and dramatically enhance your budgeting process.
