What to consider when selecting a clinical site?

When deciding which clinical sites to select for your clinical investigation, a number of factors need to be considered. Are there regulatory or reimbursement considerations that weight into the decision? Are there key opinion leaders in the field you want to select as investigator? Which sites can accomplish the required enrollment rates? Cultural or physical differences might influence the countries of interest for your clinical investigation. Selecting a clinical site for specific, well considered, reasons will certainly support the feasibility of the clinical investigation.

Why clinical site training is important

To ensure that the investigation will be completed in compliance with the regulatory requirements and the instructions in the protocol, the selected clinical site needs training. Instructions regarding CIP compliance, clinical data capture and GCP are essential to obtain valuable, high quality data.  


Qserve facilitates tailored clinical site selection and offers clinical site training in compliance with applicable regulations. Qserve's business unit Clinical Evaluation has experienced staff that worked several years at contract research organizations (CRO) with an international scope.
