Tips to Quell “Firefighting” in Clinical Research

Clinical Project Managers (CPMs) can spend a considerable amount of time “firefighting”. Recently, Dalfoni Banerjee was invited by the Society of Clinical Research Associates (SOCRA), New York State Chapter, to discuss best practices that CPMs can immediately implement to prevent firefighting – and make their working lives easier and more productive. During the virtual presentation, Dalfoni provided real-world examples of tried-and-true techniques and tools that can help avoid some of the pitfalls. She also highlighted some of the hefty benefits that can be reaped when the best practices are incorporated into business-as-usual practices.
