The Current State of Study Activation and Methods to Ensure Success

Study activation is a balance between quickly crafting budgets, contract negotiations, sign offs, ethical and feasibility approval, and logistically setting up the study while ensuring compliance with federal, state, and local requirements. These processes take time, resources, and upfront investments from sites. How do sites enable a quick activation timeline while checking off all the boxes?

In late 2020, Advarra conducted a survey asking clinical research sites to weigh in on their activation timeline experiences and to identify roadblocks they may experience. In this webinar, Wendy Tate and Cheryl Byers of Advarra will outline the study activation report, including information and suggestions for sites to implement while streamlining their activation timelines.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the importance of protocol feasibility and identify solutions to incorporate at your organization
  • Summarize key findings to streamline study activation from our The State of Clinical Trial Activation at Sites report
  • Identify questions, factors, and processes to consider when assessing a study's feasibility
