Clinical Research Associate TeamExample 1
Klinikos was asked to provide a team of 4 regionally based freelance Clinical Research Associates in the UK to support the Client’s in house medical team. One key factor was the need for the Client to maintain control of a Phase III endocrine study and keep strong links with Investigators for future studies. Regular direct communication throughout the study between the Freelance CRAs, Investigators and the client allowed excellent relationships to foster between all parties. Key to the success of this project was the Sponsor’s ability to integrate the Freelance CRAs into the Medical Department and treat them as if they were employees of the company.
Klinikos was approached to provide 7 CRAs for a Medical Device Sponsor in Bulgaria, Hungary, Austria, Germany, Poland, Spain and UK. This was for a pivotal cardiology study with 190 patients. Crucial to the success of this study would be the choice of Freelance CRAs who not only had a background in cardiology but medical device experience that would prove to be an advantage when dealing with Investigators and reporting of not just Adverse events but also Adverse Device Effects.
Not only did this study complete on time, the Sponsor offered the team to come on board as full time employees of the company.
