5 Hurdles to Overcome When Planning a Clinical Trial

Hurdles to overcomeThe planning stage is critical to the success of any clinical trial. It sets expectations for how your team will work together to collect data, monitor results, protect human subjects and much more.

In effect, it sets the standards for your entire trial, so it’s essential to get it right from the start. However, the planning stage is most often when progress stalls before it even begins. Clinical professionals encounter a number of hurdles that can slow momentum, delay approval or even compromise the integrity of the study if they aren’t addressed.

Here are five of the most common hurdles your team is likely to face when planning a clinical trial and how to overcome them.
