|Whether you want someone to handle your clinical study in its entirety, assist with specific parts of it or outsource a certain staff, you can choose City as dependable partner.|
MONITORING IS THE KEY LINK BETWEEN CLINICAL ROUTINE AND GCP-COMPLIANT CLINICAL RESEARCH. A TRIAL’S SUCCESS OR FAILURE DEPENDS LARGELY ON THE QUALITY OF MONITORING, AND THE STUDY DURATION IS GREATLY INFLUENCED BY IT.
We set high standards for the professional qualification of our monitors. All CITY monitors have a medical/scientific background and undergo several months of training before taking over management of study sites. The average monitoring experience of our in-house and field based CRAs is more than 3 years, and some have up to 10 years of experience. Our CRAs routinely use EDC systems and a range of web-based tracking and reporting tools. Continuous documented trainings are mandatory.
CITY has acquired a broad experience through the management of a large number of trials of various phases, sizes, and indications. This includes complex global studies for FDA submission as well post -authorization studies with optimized activity plans.
The high level of professionalism is ensured by our CRAs’ degree of training, and maintained by the combination of challenging project management and monitoring tasks. We consider this the key to our exceptionally low fluctuation in monitoring staff, which in turn is vital to competent and high quality monitoring throughout a project’s course.
CITY’s key monitoring competence covers all Baltic countries. A net of experienced partner CROs is relied on for the monitoring of other European countries.
