Site performance imageHow do we know if a site is performing well?

Julie Turzanski, Diane Whitham and Leila Duley at the Nottingham Clinical Trials Unit are leading a project to  improve trial efficiency by agreeing a standardised set of metrics for monitoring site performance.

The project is now running an online Delphi survey as part of work to agree a core set of metrics that are essential for the management, reporting and tracking of site performance in multicentre trials. The idea is that this will serve as an ‘at a glance early warning system’, allowing potential problems at a site to be addressed before a trial is affected adversely.

You can start the survey by clicking:

The survey is expected to run for up to three rounds, sent out in June, July and August 2017 and each round should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.  The first round will run until June 23rd.

Participants completing all three rounds will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win:

  1. BOSE QuietComfort® 35 Wireless Headphones (first prize)
  2. £100 Amazon.co.uk Gift Voucher (2 prizes)
  3. £50 Amazon.co.uk Gift Voucher (2 prizes)
