5 Takeaways: Clinical Trial Site Feasibility & Selection
- During the feasibility stage, it is important to gain a better understanding about a site's access to the study population. Providing more information about the study will result in a more accurate assessment and can be used to identify potential issues with study design.
- For all phases of clinical trials, it is important to assess the investigator’s previous experience with similar studies. However, sites that show high levels of interest and a commitment are also highly desirable as a ‘make-it-happen’ attitude is necessary in approaching new clinical research projects.
- Access to adequate resources to run a trial is fundamental, for example, sufficient site personnel, equipment and facilities on-site. Identifying any gaps and working towards building a successful project team.
- It is important for the Sponsor to be aware of any potentially competing studies within the same trial site.
- While budget discussions with potential sites can be the determining factor in selecting a site, our team has experience in preparation of draft budgets that are transparent to support clarity of budget planning discussions with sites and Sponsors.
