How To Tell Difference Between A CRO vs SMO In Clinical Research!

Share Button


In this week’s full length podcast, I dive into the viewer question box and pull out some interesting topics. The first is how CRO’s and Sponsors ensure that PI’s are truly reading the Serious Adverse Event Reports that they send to all research sites, or whether they are just signing and filing. The next question is how to tell the difference between a CRO and an SMO in clinical research. Another topic is PI availability versus the Sponsor’s ever increasing demands for more PI oversight and what we can expect in 2014 and 2015 in this industry. There are other topics I cover here as well and I hope you find some value out of it. quotescover-JPG-53

The Number One Mistake To Avoid When Filling Out Those Pesky Clinical Research Feasibility Surveys

So many people, especially those who are new to the business of clinical research, tend to embellish their recruitment capabilities when filling out site feasibility surveys that Sponsors and CRO’s ask clinics to fill out when qualifying for new studies. The problem with embellishing, besides the obvious fact that it is a little dishonest, is that Sponsors will actually hold you accountable to those numbers that you put down on the form. Even if your Site should become a high enroller in the study, the fact that you did not meet your enrollment projections will do more harm than good for your company in the long run, and Sponsors do indeed take these projections seriously!
