Research Consortiums provide opportunities for investigator initiated multi-centered clinical trials. This webinar will consist of a panel of experts providing best practices and the pitfalls of these types of trials from both the lead site and site coordinator perspective. Training coordinators may be difficult since consortium studies rarely have formal investigator meetings or site training. Best practices for training, mentoring and networking that have been successfully implemented will be explored. Data (pre/post survey) from consortium coordinators will be presented and project management checklists will be provided.
Upon completion of this Webinar, attendees should be able to:
Describe consortium based research trials from both the lead site and participating site perspective
Differentiate between pharmaceutical trials and consortium research projects and examine key differences
Develop strategies to manage consortium trials by evaluating tools and appraising the evidence regarding coordinator mentoring, training and networking.
