Pro-ficiency’s Commitment to Customer Service

Good customer service starts with a great product. Without that foundation—a product that is reliable and meets client needs precisely—it doesn’t matter how well and quickly customer service can address problems. In other words, a product with a bug count of zero and...

Reducing Study Team Burden with Targeted Training

Reducing Study Team Burden with Targeted Training

Booming administrative tasks, customized technology systems and redundant certification and training requirements are among the primary factors that clinical research staff say eats up time better spent with patients and adds excessive burden—often uncompensated—to study teams. Tailoring training to both the protocol not only will better assure a sponsor that each employee at a site is getting exactly the training they need, but it will save research staff the time burden of going through training they don’t need.

Mitigating Study Risk With Performance Analytics

Mitigating Study Risk With Performance Analytics

Research sites are turning to various types of performance metrics to support risk-based management of clinical trials. “The first step in proactive data monitoring is to identify what is possible to mitigate, eliminate, and accept,” Hughes wrote. “This all forms part of various plans, including those for data, training, monitoring, statistical analysis, safety, medical monitoring, quality, and other functional plans.”

Correcting Site Enrollment In 3 Steps

Correcting Site Enrollment In 3 Steps

Patient enrollment is a common subject of discussion among both sponsors and research sites. Challenges to enrollment can be myriad, and the root causes are hard to pin down. But effective enrollment is critical to the ultimate success of any clinical trial, and there...

Reducing Protocol Deviations With Training-Based Metrics

Reducing Protocol Deviations With Training-Based Metrics

Protocol deviations can have a detrimental effect on new drug development, adding to costs and time to clinical trials and even putting the acceptability of data generated during a study at risk. Despite this, protocol deviations seem to be viewed as just part of...

Telling Ain’t Training

Telling Ain’t Training

Whether ensuring GCP compliance or the correct application of a study protocol, training is a critical part of any clinical trial. During the life of a study, there may be several points at which a sponsor may require additional or more intensive training to...

SIVs: Identify Skill Gaps Before Retraining

SIVs: Identify Skill Gaps Before Retraining

As a former CRA, I have spent the better part of my career mentoring, teaching, and helping CRAs become competent at monitoring clinical trials to ensure compliance with protocol and GCP. In light of this experience, I urge all CRAs and monitors to STOP THE MADNESS of...

Preventing Protocol Deviations With Simulation-Based Training

Preventing Protocol Deviations With Simulation-Based Training

Protocol deviations can have a devastating impact on the quality and integrity of key study data and potentially affect patient safety. And there can be serious regulatory repercussions for failing to follow the protocol precisely, as well. Taking the right approach...

Behavior Should Drive Clinical Trial Training, Not Test Scores

Behavior Should Drive Clinical Trial Training, Not Test Scores

Behavior Should Drive Clinical Trial Training, Not Test Scores Applying analytics that focus heavily on measuring changes to research staff behavior during training can be a strong predictor of performance during an active clinical trial, leading to better protocol...
