The Pulse on Study Conduct

Educate yourself on new therapeutic areas

Medical knowledge for the vast assimi­lation of clinical research guidelines is necessary for anyone entering the field. The diverse regulatory landscape requires us to stay abreast of changes that impact patient safety data. It is a multifaceted learning process with educational requirements that vary by role. We should never expect anyone to have every answer, or to know everything about a protocol/therapeutic area. That sets an unreal­istic standard that undermines performance.
