Virtual ACRP 2020, Part II – Study Management & Conduct (Part 1) Track Replay

This package is a replay of the ACRP 2020 Virtual, Part II Program.  It includes the following sessions:

  • Patients First: Building Compassion in Research

Join us for a candid discussion as a clinical researcher, patient and physician share their unique stories of learning compassion for clinical research patients in very unexpected ways. At times, the role of the patient in clinical research can get lost in the day to day tasks of a trial. Learn how clinicians can build compassion into their work and bring more awareness to clinical research and opportunities that exist for patients. Speakers: Jennifer Byrne, CEO, Javara Inc.; Dr. David Zaas, MD, MBA, Chief Executive Officer for the Charleston Division and the Chief Clinical Officer for MUSC Health, Medical University of South Carolina; T.J. Sharpe, Patient Advisor, Starfish Harbor

  • Improving Alignment and Risk Management Approaches Across Pharma/CRO/Site Relations

This session will focus on skillsets and approaches when working to establish alignment and improve outcomes across stakeholders- Pharma, CRO and Site Relations. We will actively analyze common challenges with particular focus on risk assessments, root cause analysis, problem-solving and escalation/communication facing us in 2020 and beyond. Speakers: Amanda Wright, BS, Vice President of Partnership Development, Javara Research; Lynn King, BA, MHA, Executive Director, Clinical Management, North America Regional Head, PPD

  • Secrets to Site Operations Success

    “Are we there yet?”  How many times did you say this as a child, or hear it as a parent?  When it comes to the time and energy needed to get a study up and running, the research path sometimes feels similarly long, grueling and tiresome.  For this presentation, you will peek behind the scenes at study expectations from sponsor and site perspectives.  You will learn what one community site does to review potential studies, assess each for feasibility, and how these processes are driving institutional changes necessary to fit shifting protocol demands.  We will help you identify ways to improve site performance and manage the cries of “are we there yet?” Speakers: Evonne Lackey, BA, CCRP, Director of Clinical Research, Swedish Cancer Institute; Erik Bailey, CCRP, Oncology Research Coordinator Lead, Swedish Health Services

  • Integrating Quality into Investigator-Initiated Trials

There are many steps that must be taken to assess risk and integrate quality when developing, initiating and conducting a clinical trial. These steps are crucial for every type of clinical trial, but may be overlooked in Investigator-Initiated Trials (IITs) leading to IITs that are poorly designed, over budget, and difficult to analyze. This session will describe how to apply quality principles to investigator-initiated clinical trials utilizing tips, tools, and templates available to help along the way. Speaker: Neala Lane, MS, CCRC, Associate Director, Quality Improvement Office Indiana University
