As research coordinators, you work on research studies involving drugs, medical devices, and diagnostics. Your job is to enroll patients in studies, but you’re also the first line of defense protecting patients from inappropriate therapies and procedures and preventing bad outcomes resulting from poor patient selection. How and when do you make your voice heard? When do you take a stand? Who can help? How do you steer the ship when you’re not the captain?

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Identify risks associated with a new therapy or product
  • Consider the multiple perspectives involved in clinical decision-making
  • Identify opportunities to make your voice heard
