Strategies that Inform Investigator Selection and Enhance Enrollment

A WCG FREE Webinar
Thursday, Jan. 25, 2018 • 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EST

Clinical Trial Agreement … Does the very sound of those three words make you stay up at night?

Contracting with sites is one of the biggest pain points in clinical research – so much to consider, so much to negotiate, so many people to deal with. And the success of your trial rides on your ability to do it right … and quickly.

What if you approached site contracting as an opportunity rather than a headache? Could you accelerate study startup, reduce expenses and avoid complications? Two contracting experts say YES!

WCG Vice Presidents, Brooke Millman and Suzanne Caruso, tell you how in this 60-minute webinar. You’ll learn:

  • How the often lengthy site contracting phase has been separated from the start-up timeline, resulting in inevitable delays and costs – each month your site isn’t activate and enrolling patients can cost you millions of dollars;
  • How to strategically modify your site selection and contracting approach to bring about maximum gain; and
  • The importance of transparency when negotiating budgets and payment terms.

More than 19% of studies fail because they can’t get started on time. Don’t let yours be one of them. Register now!
