Clinical Site Management: The Key to Successful Trials
Almost nine in ten clinical trials fail. While some failure is inevitable based on the development of the science, this figure is astoundingly, unacceptably high. Especially after spending over a billion dollars on average per trial and over a decade in development.
Why do so many clinical trials fail? There are many of the usual suspects ¬– excuses such as lack of efficacy, safety concerns, strategic reasons and economics, or some combination of these. Bull!
The real reasons: poor study design, increasingly complex protocols, poor trial management, lack of site involvement in study design, and weak teams. Awkward reasons managers don’t like to discuss, because they have to do with the quality of the clinical trial management and site selection. These are things you can do something about.
On December 4, the Biocom CRO group will present a panel of highly experienced and successful clinical trial managers, sponsors, monitors and site managers who will discuss their experiences, best practices and the lessons they have learned on the way to clinical trial success (and failure).
