Why You Should Attend

Managing Vendor/CRO Oversight

Forming quality partnerships between pharma’s and CROs is essential to executing clinical trials in an efficient manner.  There must be a commitment from both the sponsor company and the CRO to form a partnership.  By implementing agreements on experience levels of study team staff, focusing on important KPIs, trusting the operational team staff to perform their responsibilities, creating short- and long-term milestones, and setting clear roles and responsibilities, the parties can improve their chance of achieving a successful partnership.
