The Importance of Public Speaking in Clinical Research



Effective Public speaking is integral to clinical research education/ communication. It impacts every aspect of study conduct.

  • The investigator educates the study patient on trial participation (via the informed consent) with an avid description of risks, benefits and patient responsibilities

  • The Clinical Research Associate (CRA) presents protocol procedural information to the study coordinators (SC) at the site initiation visit (SIV) to ensure accurate completion

  • The clinical trial manager (CTM) trains CRA staff on protocol endpoints to ensure credible data review/collection practices during monitoring visits
