The Association of Clinical Research Professionals

Applying Implementation Science to Improve the Quality of Clinical Trials in Academia

Unlike clinical studies conducted by industry in which companies provide monitors to help verify data quality, studies conducted in academia often lack such oversight. These investigator-initiated studies would benefit from internal monitoring by, for example, a group of research personnel who might monitor each other’s trials. While all research professionals are frequently training on Good Clinical Practice, the tactical instructions on how to achieve positive outcomes – including approaches to proper monitoring – are lacking. Learn about a novel learning module developed and launched to address this need and an applied framework based on applied science to maximize its effectiveness. The speaker will discuss reasons and methods for developing this initiative, as well as implementation strategies, tools utilized to assess successful implementation, and findings.
