There is much to consider when managing a multicenter clinical trial. Topics under consideration include a spectrum from budget creation to subject recruitment/retention. THE HEART HOSPITAL Baylor Plano is a participating clinical research site for CABANA, which is sponsored by The National Health Institute, Duke University, and The Mayo Clinic. CABANA will be utilized to elucidate the commencement of a multicenter clinical trial, as well as illustrate issues that may be encountered throughout the process.
The successful execution of a clinical trial such as CABANA needs individuals that are dedicated to the research involved and that the handling of every aspect of the trial is performed with unparalleled proficiency.
