Q&A with Rebecca Hinton, Clinical Project & Safety Manager at genae Americas
Q: Are there any specific pieces of information you would include in a site feasibility survey for a neurology trial?
A: It is always important to gather information regarding competing neurology research studies that may be taking place at the site, or nearby centers, as these trials could affect the enrollment rate for your study. While we would of course include this information in a site feasibility survey, we also verify this information independently.
Each neurology study has unique needs, and each clinical site is different, so we always verify that the site is in possession of the required neurosurgical equipment and has appropriate training and experience to operate it. Prior to a site selection visit, our Full-time CRAs are thoroughly trained on the required equipment and site staff qualifications so that they can appropriately vet a potential site.
