  • Tuesday, May 14, 2024

Selecting appropriate sites is one of the most crucial determinants of study success, yet efficient clinical trial site selection continues to be a prominent industry-wide challenge. Inability to meet planned recruitment timelines and failure to enroll participants impose an economic burden on sponsors, with downstream impacts on patients in the form of higher costs or even failed investigative drugs.

In a competitive environment where clinical trial designs are increasing in complexity and sites are becoming more selective about the studies they take on, sponsors are under pressure to take a nuanced approach to clinical trial site selection, one that leverages both traditional methods and innovative technologies.

This webinar will delve into the multifaceted process of clinical trial site selection, highlighting the importance of a methodology that incorporates stakeholder engagement, data-driven decision-making and the integration of technological solutions.

Register for this webinar today to gain insights into the multifaceted process of clinical trial site selection to increase the efficiency and quality of clinical trials.
