Study Implementation/ In-Service Training

After a study receives IRB approval, it is important to have a formal study implementation meeting with all internal key personnel.  The focus of the implementation meeting is to ensure that all budget, contract, nursing, data collection, laboratory, and other protocol-specific issues have been resolved prior to opening a study to participant accrual.  This is also the opportunity to ensure that all key personnel have completed any protocol specific training and are familiar with the expectations of the protocol and investigator responsibilities and the delegation of responsibilities.

The implementation meeting is a detailed planning session involving the key personnel associated with the study.  Typical attendees of an implementation meeting include but are not limited to research staff (clinical research coordinators, clinical research nurses, data coordinators, clinical research managers and regulatory compliance officers, Principal Investigators and Sub-investigators), contract and budget analysts, clinical staff (clinic/unit nurse manager, nurse specialists, unit PCRM, clinic/unit staff RN), Pharmacist, clinic and research lab personnel, hospital administration, financial counselors and pre-certification/pre-determination representatives.

The agenda may include, but is not limited to, the items below:
