Limited Capacity seats available

Component Type: Workshop
Level: Intermediate

Increasing complexity in clinical trial protocols makes implementation and reporting difficult. The lack of consistency across protocols compounds the issue. TransCelerate BioPharma Inc. has released a Common Protocol Template that provides a common structure and model language. The common protocol template is a foundational element in the longer-term movement towards an electronic protocol. Participants will rotate through interactive, discussion-based stations to learn about the Common Protocol Template and inform its future development. Topics will include:

• Implementation: benefits and overcoming common challenges
• Technology Enabled Edition: how content reuse and metadata capture is possible today
• Experience from the Trenches: lessons learned and FAQs about the template.

**Due to session format, seating will be limited to 50 participants and available on a first come, first served basis. Once all seats are occupied, DIA will be required to close the session, and no more participants will be admitted. Interested attendees are encouraged to arrive early in order to ensure seating.

Learning Objectives

Explain the value of harmonizing protocols across industry; Discuss the TransCelerate Common Protocol Template; Identify implementation challenges and strategies for overcoming them.
