This Industry Leaders Think Tank is focused on Site Best Practice and Innovations.  We will report back on clinical trial site standards developed following the joint IAOCR / NIHR Meeting in 2018, discuss changing practices and quality assurance standards, decentralised trials and patient centricity in the context of rapid changes during the pandemic as well as the need for change as a result of the global spotlight covid has shone on clinical trials.

The Think Tank will take place in a unique venue at the Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor.  It is well-located close to the M4 and M25 as well as being a short taxi ride from a number of mainline train stations and also London Heathrow Airport.  Accommodation can also be booked directly with the venue, or there are plenty of hotels nearby in central Windsor & surrounding areas.

“Every patient participating in a clinical trial deserves the best protection in terms of rights and wellbeing. Ensuring competence of the clinical research workforce and quality of clinical trial sites is essential to patient-centricity, patient safety and data integrity.

To this end we are committed to facilitating and driving thought leadership to build best practice standards and accreditations that serve patients, reduce risk and are endorsed by industry.”

Jaqueline Johnson North, Co-Founder for IAOCR and Global Clinical Site Assessment (GCSA)

It has been an absolute privilege to contribute to the frameworks  that GCSA and IAOCR have developed for clinical trial sites and staff. Ensuring best in class global standards in terms of people and processes plays a big part in reducing risk in clinical research.

 

Throughout the whole process the regulators, industry and sites have worked hand in hand to determine a global competency framework to underpin IAOCR's Internationally Qualified Professional accreditation for site staff. The independent Global Advisory Board has unanimously ratified the GCSA accreditation standard for clinical trial sites, ensuring a robust standard for sites that can be adapted to fit with any country across the globe. These new standards will aid efficiency of clinical trials and provide reassurance to patients and sponsors.
