Strategies to Streamline Site Activation and Overcome Timely Challenges
More new-to-research sites are being engaged in trials to reach patient populations, achieve enrollment and startup objectives, and adapt to site staffing shortages and turnover. In tandem with the influx of studies restarting in a post-pandemic research landscape, many sponsors and contract research organizations (CROs) across both industry and therapeutic areas are experiencing delays in site activation.
Often, one of the few study timelines within your control is activating a site efficiently. This can greatly impact your program’s success and profitability. Join us to explore strategies to streamline the site activation process from industry experts Adam Ruskin, Advarra’s Director of Consulting’s Clinical Center of Excellence, and Aidan Gannon, Advarra’s Director of Technology Client Services. The webinar will debunk common assumptions hindering your timelines, investigate current challenges your teams and sites face, and propose strategies on how to expedite activation across multiple activities like planning, feasibility, site selection, training, and more.
- Examine the current state of site activation like staffing shortages, pressure on patient populations due to restarted research, and more
- Address how the ‘status-quo’ approach to site activation increases your chances of delays
- Learn strategies to improve study planning, feasibility, site selection, and more to implement at your organization
