UIDP Academy: Reducing Time to Trial Activation

April 1 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Workshop Overview


Delays in clinical trial activation have negative impacts on an individual study’s feasibility and can affect a site’s desirability in the eyes of a sponsor. Awareness and knowledge of best practices in place across the clinical research industry allow sites to assess workflows, resourcing, training and quality elements within their research program.

During this workshop, participants will hear from organizations that have deployed novel approaches to addressing the many delays that cause slow trial activation. Participants will also have the opportunity to share experiences, ideas, and approaches used to streamline and strengthen study activation and administration processes.

Potential Areas of Focus:

  • Identify/discuss Pain Points, Inefficiencies, and Sources of Delay
    • External pain points (e.g. issues between sites and sponsors / CROs)
    • Internal pain points (Pharma / CROs)
    • Internal pain points (Research sites)
  • Idea exchange
    • Tools, approaches, communication strategies
    • What has worked / not worked and why?
  • Innovations
    • Use of technology w/in and across sites/sponsors
    • Use of third-party providers/outsourcing

People who will be interested in attending:

Principal Investigators, Clinical Research Administrators, Research Site Managers, IRB professionals, Research Finance professionals, Sponsored Projects/Contracts professionals

Expected Outcomes:

  • Development/confirmation of themes related to study activation challenges
  • Exchange of tools, approaches and other ideas used to address these challenges
  • Session Summary (to be provided to participants w/in a month after the session)
