Setting up and running clinical research projects is a complex process that needs effective project management. The course includes an emphasis on the need to anticipate, understand, and implement detailed project management activities in a proactive manner. It is essential to manage clinical research projects within the set time frame, to budget and the right quality standard.
With ever-increasing pressures on clinical research professionals, the use of project management can provide essential tools and techniques and be a key factor in the successful completion of such projects including bringing a drug or medical device to market – as demonstrated by the FDA critical path initiative.
This interactive three-day course has been designed to provide participants with a thorough understanding of both technical and interpersonal project management skills in clinical research projects. Interactive exercises are used to aid the learner in the application of clinical project management concepts and principles so they can easily use the tools to improve the success of existing or future clinical research projects.
