WASHINGTON DC, USA -- PHARMA UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- NOVEMBER 14, 2006: Failure to recruit subjects is the number one reason clinical trials do not meet deadlines. Compounded by failure to properly consent patients, 72 percent of all trials run over schedule by more than one month and only 6 percent are completed on time. Delayed or canceled studies and negative publicity can cost companies millions - even billions - of dollars.

With increased regulatory scrutiny and the growing complexity of clinical trials, your organization's success will depend upon its recruitment strategies and informed consent procedures. Discover how to speed the IRB and FDA review processes, shorten trial cycles and get your products to market faster.

In this two-day interactive workshop, Clinical Trials: Effective Recruitment and Informed Consent Strategies, you will:

  • Explore the most recent guidelines for effective subject recruitment, and get proven tips on how you can meet FDA and OHRP expectations
  • Learn practical, real-world approaches to incorporate HIPAA requirements into your informed consent documents
  • Discover the top three reasons institutional review boards delay approval of studies - and help your organization prevent delays
  • Analyze and prepare for the most common types of claims that occur when informed consent is not obtained
  • Examine the five major reasons for subject participation in clinical trials
  • Take home three strategies for implementing cost-saving recruitment techniques
  • Improve your informed consent document writing skills, including eight recommendations for creating plain-language forms
  • Participate in interactive practice exercises in effective and ineffective consenting procedures
  • And much more!
