About Research Ready 

Research Ready is a new CTO Platform designed to help research coordinators develop efficient processes, establish best practices and apply guidelines to conduct clinical trials more efficiently and effectively.   Research Ready workshops will highlight changes in our clinical trial environment and provide a framework of expertise, practical application and networking opportunities to support and provide continuing education to research coordinators.

Who should attend this Workshop?

This workshop is primarily intended for research coordinators who:

  • Are new to their role
  • Want to improve their current process and be confident in
  • Want to refresh their skills
  • Want to build their network

The workshop will include presentations, breakout sessions and opportunities for people to work together on scenarios to help absorb new learnings.

A detailed agenda will be provided in coming weeks.

Workshop Learning Goals

From this workshop, we will examine consenting patients in a modern, competitive clinical trial environment with a strong emphasis on regulations, privacy and legal aspects.

Have you ever asked: When can you start screening patients?  How do you re-consent when using e-consent? What documentation will you need in an audit if your REB does not allow the PI to consent patients?  In this workshop, you will learn how the regulations and other considerations apply to everyday trial processes (i.e. documentation, consent, communication). You will also be introduced to the Research Ready platform and community networking opportunities.
