Effective study set-up

Building on all previous interactions, we create and implement a study-wide action plan, detailing a single set of recommendations and key information for all study sites that enables a ‘do once and share’ approach.

The study-wide action plan serves as a central resource to help all sites set-up effectively. It helps to maximise study delivery, enables sites to develop proactive solutions and encourages collaborative working.

The study-wide action plan also works alongside our Clinical Research Network’s good practice principles for local site assessment, arrangement and confirmation of capacity and capability to provide consistency in set-up across all sites. Our national approach ensures your study is set up as quickly and efficiently as possible.
