Registration is now open to join the new Clinical Research Project ECHO, sponsored by the NNE-CTR! To register, visit this link.
This ECHO is designed for participants who are interested in developing clinical research skills by connecting with experienced clinical investigators and research professionals and to network with Northern New England's growing community of clinician-researchers so that we can learn about clinical research from each other.
Please see the flyer with information about this Clinical Research Project ECHO and Project ECHO program in general.
We will meet the 3rd Wednesday of every month at noon by zoom. Each session will start with a 15 minute mini-lecture followed by a lively group discussion driven by questions from the participants, that can -but don't have to- be related to the topic of the mini-lecture. The confirmed presenters of the first 5 mini-lectures are listed below.
September 15th - Evaluating whether a sponsored clinical study is a good fit for you and your practice [Jonathan Zuckerman, MD with Krista Garrison (Director of Clinical Trials Office)]
October 20th - Investigator responsibilities - key elements in the oversight of study conduct [Susan Miesfeldt, MD with Crystal Nayock (Research Educator)]
November 17th - Research team responsibilities - short guide to who does what in the team [Doug Sawyer, MD with Deb Burris (Clinical Research Coordinator)]
December 15th - Communication strategies for keeping your study running smoothly [Jeffrey Florman, MD with Debbie Cushing (Clinical Research Coordinator)]
January 19th - Common reasons for delays in IRB approval and how to avoid them [Elizabeth Campbell (Director Office of Research Ethics and Compliance)]
The Clinical Research ECHO will focus on developing all types of clinical research including investigator-initiated projects. Participants will learn how to:
- Access the most current resources and support available for clinical research
- Understand the responsibilities of the Principal Investigator and research team
- Evaluate the feasibility and/or financial impact of your research idea
- Identify knowledge gaps and choose the appropriate research type and study design
- Learn what to expect from the IRB and ethical reviews
Clinical research investigators and team members from northern New England, including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, research coordinators,
medical students, etc.
Anywhere! The virtual model uses Zoom to allow you to participate from your organization or any location that is convenient for you
The 3rd Wednesday of each month from 12-1pm, starting September 15th.
