April 2011 Chris Beardmore, TRM CEO, Speaking at SOCRA in San Diego, Friday, April 15th, 2011
Presentation will be “Human Subjects Protections Through Education and Standardization Within a Community Focused Clinical Trials Network”
Community oncologists are estimated to treat over 80% of all cancer patients; however, they tend to not participate in/offer clinical trials designed to diagnose, treat, ameliorate or cure cancer. Only 25% of all oncologists have undergone any formal training in clinical trials. This presentation will discuss how to best approach training personnel and developing standardized procedures to build quality into a translational research network, and how this approach is thought to impact compliance with Good Clinical Practice.
