You have a great research idea…now what?
It is important to plan all aspects of your clinical research study as early as possible, and prior to beginning your project, to prevent challenges in data collection, human resources, budgets, regulatory compliance, or timelines. Dedicate significant time to designing your study: clearly articulate your objectives, hypothesis, and how you will meet these objectives. If necessary, be sure to obtain professional advice on protocol design, data collection, and analyses. CHÉOS provides support for clinical researchers in the form of:
- Project and data management
- Methodology and statistics
- Program evaluation
- Regulatory affairs
- Trial monitoring, and
- Health economics
CHÉOS also provides a one-hour free consultation. We recommend that you conduct a literature review and prepare specific questions prior to your consultation to ensure that you get the most out of your consultation. To help you prepare, our staff have prepared questions that they routinely ask during the consultation process. View this document here.
This process map is designed for Investigators conducting their own clinical research study, and acting as “sponsor-investigator”. However you may access this process map at any point, depending on the applicability to your research.
