Protocol Navigation: Accelerating the Development of Clinical Translational Research

On-Demand Webinar

Co-hosted by The International Association of Clinical Research Nurses (IACRN)

Presented by:  Donna Brassil MA, RN, CCRC, Clinical Research Facilitator, Rockefeller University

In translational research there are increasing challenges related to scientific and biostatistical rigor, regulatory requirements, and bioethical review as well as a demand for more rapid discoveries to improve health outcomes. One strategy to overcome these barriers includes developing a protocol navigation program.

This session will discuss Rockefeller University’s protocol navigation program including:

  • The role of the navigator
  • The value of navigation
  • The metrics used to evaluation the program
