A Quick Guide to Clinical Trials – This book provides a unique view of the clinical trials process.
Appropriately designed and executed clinical trials are at the heart of the successful development of new medicines for patients. You will be able to see exactly how any given discipline fits in and plays its part in delivering the overall clinical trial program. The successful design, execution and delivery of an effective clinical trial program relies on excellent cooperation, understanding and respect within an often widely dispersed multi-disciplinary team. The chapters are jargon-lite but detailed enough to provide the framework onto which you, the reader, can attach that jargon when you are good and ready. Each chapter also stands alone as a ‘quick dip’ foundation or refresher. Everyone involved in clinical trials finds it demanding to keep up-to-date with current developments in the field. We believe you will come away with a really good basic grasp of the excitement of the clinical trials process, its drivers, checks and balances, and how you may even be able to contribute in a wide variety of ways.
