The Art and Science of Clinical Trial Feasibility

By Alexia Medici, Account Executive on Wed, Feb 12, 2020 | 2 min read

 

Determining site feasibility is something that most investigators and site coordinators are familiar with. However, once the questionnaire is filled out and provided back to the sponsor and/or CRO, sites may not be aware of the internal process a reviewing entity may have in evaluating the site’s feasibility for the study. As a former clinical research coordinator, I was curious about this. So, I decided to work with BBK's President Matt Kibby, who has been revolutionizing the site feasibility process for the past 20 years. Together, we worked to understand and provide greater context to current site staff regarding the way BBK views and evaluates sites for study feasibility.

Myths are stubborn, persistent, and can easily put your well-intentioned clinical trial enrollment efforts at risk. But spotting and correcting them can be a challenge. To help the industry discern fact from fiction, we assembled our own MythBusters team, dedicated to confirming or busting common clinical trial myths. Empowered with data from our industry-wide surveys of patients, physicians, and clinical trial sponsors, the team identifies pervasive myths, puts them to the test, and arrives at a verdict.

2020: A Look Inside Our Crystal Ball

By Elizabeth Gargill on Thu, Dec 19, 2019 | 4 min read

 

In this special year end post, we asked a few of our BBK industry experts to comment on the clinical research landscape and to share their predictions for 2020.

Sarah Mandracchia, Director, Site Operations

Where do you see clinical trial patient travel going in 2020? 

I predict that 2020 will be a year of transformation for travel in the clinical trial space. In the last six months, we have seen a dramatic shift in our sponsors’ understanding of their patients’ needs related to travel, and more in-depth language included in informed consent forms (ICFs). This growing understanding of their patients, and the possible travel offerings, then resonates with their sites, which, in turn, feel even more supported during clinical trial administration.
