With investigator payments constituting as much as 50 percent of a study’s overall costs, it’s important to understand and manage the key drivers of these costs. By doing so, sponsors and CROs can benefit from accelerated negotiations, reduced compliance risk and better site relationships.
Join us for this one-hour webinar session to hear:
- A description of the primary drivers of site costs, with examples;
- An in-depth discussion of the correlation and impact of study complexity; and
- Case studies highlighting the benefits of better study planning.
