Back from the Brink: Rescuing a Clinical Research Site

Many clinical research sites are operated in organizations that are not otherwise focused on research. At times, such sites might encounter problems that threaten patient safety, study integrity, and the future of their engaging in research. Poorly performing sites can experience poor investigator and participant satisfaction, negative net revenue, and meager quality. A poorly performing site is also at enhanced risk for termination by the parent organization during cost reductions. Drastic actions could be needed to recover the capability of these sites to perform quality research. Come explore how sites might find themselves in such a circumstance, ways to identify what is and is not working, taking corrective actions, and solidifying those actions into a research program focused on quality.
