Join us for a multi-part webinar series on the trends, challenges, and solutions affecting investigational sites

Clinical research sites are experiencing a period of unprecedented highs and lows with more clinical research trials starting than ever before. Challenges continue to mount, from strained resource capacity to increased protocol complexity; to lingering effects of the pandemic and overall low patient participation rates, research staff members are currently in a position where they’re expected to do more with less.

As the industry looks to problem-solve and mitigate these risks, every clinical research site is working diligently to find solutions that help them navigate these impacts.

In this multi-part series, WCG and industry experts will address topics plaguing research sites such as: financial management, contracts and budgets, central IRB review, site augmentation, the great resignation, clinical trial management systems, and site training.

In each webinar, we’ll share a market analysis of what our data tells us about the headwinds we’re facing, and we’ll also share proven strategies that many organizations have already put in place to help.
