CTTI to Offer Insights on Investigator Qualification, Mobile Technologies, and Other Opportunities in Clinical Research at ACRP 2018

The ACRP 2018 education and networking event will feature three presentations from CTTI highlighting evidence-based strategies for enhancing clinical trial quality and efficiency. The event will take place in National Harbor, Md., from April 27-30.


On Sat., April 28, CTTI Executive Director Pamela Tenaerts will join leaders across the clinical trials enterprise to discuss collaborative initiatives to improve clinical research, including investigator qualification, quality by design, the use of mobile technologies, and more.


The following day, CTTI will share findings from its Investigator Qualification Project, which explores how best to ensure the efficient and effective qualification of site investigators and their delegates for the quality conduct of clinical trials. In a recent ACRP article, presenter Janette Panhuis of PHRI underscores the importance of CTTI’s work to move the clinical trials enterprise toward more meaningful investigator training.


On Mon., April 30, CTTI will discuss outcomes of in-depth interviews with investigators who have conducted both traditional clinical trials and studies using mobile technologies, providing insights on the advantages and disadvantages to be aware of when running a trial with mobile technology, budgetary and training needs, and other important factors for investigative site personnel to consider.
