S.O.S. - Best Practices for Finding, Engaging and Activating Investigators on a Rescue Study, Live Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 10, 2014) - This webinar will examine the results of one such S.O.S. -- a case study where a sponsor found sites in a highly competitive therapeutic area, with a number of competing ongoing studies, and successfully rescued their study. Join this webinar to learn more on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 11:30am EDT (NA) / 4:30pm BST (UK GMT +1).

Finding qualified investigator sites who can deliver patients is always a challenge, but these recruitment challenges are amplified when the study has started and teams find themselves behind with their enrollment projections. As the project goes into "rescue mode" study teams must not only find additional sites, but also engage with them to activate them quickly.

Join presenters William Turnbull, Local Study Leader at AstraZeneca, Kirsty Kwiatkowski, Director of Feasibility and Site Identification at DrugDev, and Jim DiCesare, Vice President of Contract & Regulatory Services at DrugDev, as they also discuss how combining a technology-enabled solution with the knowledge of industry experts provides the best solution for identifying appropriate sites, engaging with them and activating them efficiently.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how to use technology to 'pre-qualify' sites ahead of a site visit, and minimise burdens on the site
  • Describe the benefits of sharing as much information as possible with investigators during site identification
  • Discover industry best practices that can both automate and expedite several key steps in the site activation process
  • Learn how to harness the power of your existing site data and documents to shorten activation in a rescue situation
