The CCRU is committed to ensuring that Princess Margaret’s research is operationally efficient and of high quality. To achieve this goal we have initiated the following:
Standardized practices, including standard operating procedures, regulatory binders and study charts
A comprehensive education program, including sessions targeting the needs of clinical trial nurses and study coordinators
Quality and metrics reporting, which includes routine reporting and review of program-wide performance and constant engagement of Princess Margaret Cancer Centre constituents about program metrics, best practices and fiscal responsibility
Training and support for highly skilled clinical research professionals, including clinical study coordinators for study management and clinical trial nurses who practice patient-centred care
To enhance the quality of investigator-initiated trials, the CCRU supports the use of our Electronic Data Capture System, Medidata Rave, at Princess Margaret. Medidata Rave is a dependable, high-quality clinical data management system that captures and stores clinical research data, which is critical to the validity and reliability of the data.
