Successful conduct of clinical research depends on the research team’s ability to navigate the many complexities of local and federal regulations, site logistics, and clinical operations.
Developing a sound understanding of these issues and acquiring the ability to accurately fulfill all responsibilities is essential. It can be difficult for study teams to obtain correct and complete information and training they need to accomplish the above.
Therefore, the CTSI Academy and the Clinical Trials Office (CTO) are offering a BootCamp Clinical Research Training Program. This program has a strong focus on the practical conduct of clinical research at MCW and its partner institutions. The goal of this program is to provide research staff – both coordinators and PIs – with important information on the research environment at MCW and its partners, while sharing tips and tools for the safe, efficient, ethical, and compliant conduct of research.
An optional module focusing exclusively on pediatric research at Children’s Wisconsin is also being offered as an extension of Bootcamp Day 2. This elective module will provide practical advice for working with the CW Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) Office to facilitate successful IRB submissions.
This program is made possible by contributions from experts at the MCW Office of Research, Children’s Wisconsin IRB, the departments of medicine and pediatrics and the Cancer Center and MCW Clinical Trials Offices.
