Effectively Applying Project Management to Clinical Studies

4-week online course | 2 hours per week

1 - 29 June 2020

Online Academy

Clinical trials are unavoidable in the development of drug products and setting up and running them is a complex, timely and costly process. It is essential to manage your clinical projects with streamlined efficiency to ensure they are completed within set timeframes and to budget. With this in mind, clinical professionals are increasingly looking for ways to improve the results of their clinical projects by implementing project management techniques. 
 
Upon completion of this course, you will have the knowledge and skills to lead agile transformation projects and build patient-focused teams. The course breaks down clinical project management into 8 manageable bitesize modules, examining techniques such as analysing stakeholders, assessing risk/benefits, budget control and management style.

If you would like to start the course sooner than advertised simply get in contact with our training consultants by emailing [email protected] and we will arrange this for you as soon as possible.
