Q&A with Rebecca Hinton, Clinical Project & Safety Manager at genae Americas
Q: Is there anything in the design of a neurology trial that you foresee as a source of difficulty when it comes to executing?
A: Study sponsors often want to be present for the first device implantation that occurs at a site to review the quality of the neurological procedure, and help troubleshoot potential problems. This requires close communication and flexibility on the sponsor’s behalf.
However, sometimes site’s privacy policies can prevent this type of oversight. In such a case, alternative quality control methods, such as providing a de-identified video recording, can be employed.
