Improve the Inclusion & Exclusion Criteria for Your Next Clinical Trial

Adherence to inclusion and exclusion criteria is essential to the successful execution of a clinical trial. Deviations from these criteria must be avoided because they can jeopardize scientific integrity, regulatory acceptability, or the safety of subjects in the study. In this webinar, Dr. Modell will provide suggestions and advice on formulating inclusion and exclusion criteria to enhance the quality of subject selection, minimize protocol violations, and avoid protocol amendments.

Webinar

Protocol Design: What You Need to Know to Ensure a Successful Study

Solid protocol design is critical to clinical development.  No matter how well executed a clinical study is, if the underlying design is flawed, it wasn’t worth doing.  In this webinar, Dr. Shoemaker and Dr. Kesler will walk through the process of developing a protocol, explain the major considerations, and point out common mistakes and challenges.
