INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP: Build Better Investigator Meetings
Devoting resources to clinical site training through investigator meetings will position a clinical trial for success. Investigator buy-in on the study objectives and well-trained, confident clinical sites are hallmarks of a successful investigator meeting. The hurdles and challenges of creating this specialized meeting are more convoluted than they may appear on the surface. This work will provide attendees with a unique, interactive opportunity to identify strategies to build investigator meetings that are effective and engaging.
Choosing Virtual vs. Face-to-Face Meetings
- Compare and contrast
- Logistics and considerations for each type
- Deciding between virtual and in-person meetings
Since investigator meetings often lead to protocol amendments, it is essential to create a meeting structure where open discussions between sites, CROs, and sponsors are facilitated. Understanding site perspectives, needs, and limitations during these meetings is just as important as the sites understanding the protocols. Since sites are not always in direct contact with the Sponsors, these meetings offer a unique opportunity for information sharing.
- Strategies for Virtual Meetings
- Strategies for Face-to-Face Meetings
- Breakout sessions to breakouts encourage peer-to-peer engagement
- Polling to facilitate discussion about investigator concerns and to confirm understanding
- Create uncommon opportunities for KOLs and clinical site staff to engage about the protocol details
Developing Strategies to Overcome Typical Investigator Meetings Pain Points
- Common pain points and mitigation strategies
- Pitfalls to avoid
- Utilizing meeting planners
