I expanded my knowledge as a CRA to achieve goals together with the sites without being the annoying CRA. We learned how to motivate the PI’s to increase patient recruitment, which I will definitely use in practice.
We also discussed a lot of ICF issues, and how they should be resolved. A lot of sites keep making mistakes in obtaining the informed consent from the patients, and I am definitely going to explain this process more to the investigators and their site staff, as this is very important in clinical trials and PI’s don’t always realize they are doing something wrong, as they always handle to treat the patients as good as possible.
I think it’s very educational to have different people at the training with different jobs and experiences. For this reason, we received several examples from several perspectives.
