Site Selection for a clinical trial is an extensive process, it is equivalent to a site’s formal interview for study participation. When high-quality sites are selected, clinical trials have a good chance of finishing on time, on budget, and with clinically sound findings.
At Clinique Research, we recruit sites with a proven track record in specific therapeutic areas and experience in similar studies. The track record starts with a comprehensive understanding of, and a careful adherence to, good clinical practice (GCP) trial guidelines.
We incorporate the following steps to ensure an objective analysis, and therefore precise site selection.
Step 1: Define Site Requirements and Selection Criteria
At Clinique Research, we select fitting sites for a study by identifying key site criteria like participant population profile, staffing and facilities, enrolment targets and period, study duration, amongst others, as this data provides the fundamentals that will guide a proper site selection.
Step 2: Identify Sites and Gather Initial Information
We have an up-to-date database of specific sites for specific therapeutic areas with diverse information of their site, size, location, specialty and detailed datasets about experience and performance which provides insight on the site’s affinity for the study.
Step 3: Evaluate and Select the Sites
We conduct Pre-study visits (PSVs) to brief the Principal Investigator on the proposed study and communicate the sponsor expectations. An assessment of the site’s equipment and facility is carried out to ascertain if the site meets the study requirements.
