Innovative Approach of Using EHR Data to Improve the Speed, Efficiency, Quality and Costs of Conducting Clinical Trials

This webinar describes how a research site’s electronic health record (EHR) data can be used to precisely identify potential subjects from its patient population, thus reducing recruitment and screening efforts and accelerating time to completion of enrollment. Involved are the use of eConsent to enroll patients from their homes, the collection and use of relevant real-world data extracted from the EHR in ways that eliminate certain study visits and manual data entry, and the use of eSource for cutting the need for source data verification.

Practical Tips for Career Development

This webinar describes techniques for developing yourself as a better leader, as well as tools for developing a strong team that fosters open communication and respect of different personality styles. It provides practical tips for developing career ladders for individuals who wish to grow, hints on how to be flexible in terms of your team’s work environments and scheduling, and lessons learned on how to interact with external teams in order to facilitate strong inter-departmental communications and work flows.

Building Relationships With Healthcare Professionals and Community Groups to Increase Enrollment

This webinar focuses on best practices for building and maintaining relationships with healthcare professionals and community groups to increase study enrollment, particularly among diverse patient populations. You will learn how to manage productive physician and community networks that result in highly qualified patient referrals through real-world examples of successful site efforts, and from recommendations on practical adjustments sites can make to their existing strategies to maximize their efforts without overburdening their schedules.

Diversity of Research Personnel: Knowing Who We Are to Know Who We Serve

This webinar highlights how lack of diversity in the recruitment of study subjects impacts the generalizability of research findings, and how evaluating diversity among your research team members will inform study design and recruitment strategies. In turn, this will increase diversity among recruited subjects and make research findings more broadly applicable to wider populations.
