Climedo Connect: Mastering Site Selection & Collaboration in Clinical Trials

October 25 2022

Clinical Sites

Tuesday, October 25 2022

A successful clinical trial is not only about gathering meaningful results, but also about having good kick-off phase and staying within the planned timeframe and budget. That's why study sponsors and CROs must manage their site recruitment with maximum efficiency. Site collaboration is more challenging than it may seem and the choice of appropriate sites for clinical trials can be very time- and cost-consuming. But how can sponsors and CROs overcome the hurdles when it comes to site recruitment? And how can sites and companies work together as efficiently as possible? 

In our Climedo Connect on October 25, Leona Turner (Trialflow) and Andrea Pelzer (Helios Klinikum Krefeld) gave us some interesting insights on the topic of mastering the site selection and collaboration in clinical trials. They also presented some initial results of a survey conducted by Climedo and Trialflow on digital tools in clinical trials and patient recruitment. In addition to the presentation, attendees took part in various live surveys, networked with other attendees and, of course, asked our experts any questions they had.
