Making Clinical Trials Less of a Trial for Investigators: Results from a Global Investigator Survey
Presented by the Society for Clinical Research Sites (SCRS)
Date: Tuesday, 9 December 2014
Time: 12:00pm ET
Register to attend
This webinar is complimentary for SCRS members, $79 for non-members
Hosted by Dr. Claire Sears, Director of Investigator Engagement at DrugDev, the webinar will present results from a large scale survey of 750 investigators in Argentina, Australia, Germany, India, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Attendees will get a clear view into the realities of what investigators report to be the burdens of clinical trial operations which contribute to high investigator turnover and make site sustainability a challenge for all involved in clinical research. Dr. Sears will discuss solutions investigators have identified to address these issues and how the pharma industry can achieve the dual goals of reducing investigator burden and realizing cost and efficiency gains.
