Rather than accepting GCP training as the default solution for qualifying investigators, the Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI) has worked to critically evaluate current approaches to investigator qualification, including GCP training, and develop recommendations on efficient and effective methods for investigators to become qualified to conduct clinical trials. This session will also describe these recommendations, focusing on the merit and value of the directives, as well as sharing insight from multiple stakeholder perspectives on how to implement these changes in practice.

Learning Objectives

Assess current industry trends and strategies on end-to-end site identification; Assess data available through public databases to aid in site selection.
