Clinical Trial Protocol
Instructor: Mukesh Kumar
Product ID: 500106
Per FDA and ICH guidelines, a clinical protocol should be based on sound scientific rationale, conducted in a suitable population, include all appropriate procedures that help meet the endpoints, and be protective of study participants both physically and ethically. On an average about one of every three clinical trials fail to meet their primary goals due to poor design, faulty statistical strategy, lower recruitment, poor management of resources, and regulatory issues. Most of these causes of failure can be mitigated by a well-designed clinical trial protocol.

Irrespective of the Phase of a study, clinical trial protocols should follow some common rules. These rules are based on regulatory requirements, scientific logic, and practical experience. This seminar will walk the attendee through 10 critical steps in the development of a clinical protocol. Step-by-step instructions will be provided, with case studies to emphasize the common mistakes and potential solutions.
