Best Practices in Study Feasibility


One of the primary challenges to successfully completing a clinical study is estimating the medical, clinical, logistical, and regulatory feasibility of the trial. Within the clinical trial feasibility process, sponsors, CROs and sites evaluate the possibility of conducting a clinical trial within a specific geographic region with the overall objective of completing the project with targeted patients and within defined timelines and costs. Thorough feasibility analyses that implement best practices will assist sponsors in delivering successful site start-ups and trials with data from the right patients while finishing on-time and on-budget. ISR gathered opinions from key stakeholders—sponsors, CROs and sites—to identify the best practices within the feasibility analysis process.
