Fourth Annual Clinical Research Symposium

The role of clinical research coordination is extremely vast and varies greatly from clinical trial to clinical trial. However, common threads such as the Common Rule, ICH and GCP guidelines are ever-present in the clinical research community. Continuing education on various topics is essential for successful trial coordination. Clinical research is an ever-evolving career, where a research coordinator is often asked to wear many hats from trial to trial and keep current on current regulations, guidelines, and best practices. Education is essential. Increased education will hopefully lead to increased patient safety and improved data quality for each clinical trial.
