Determining which sites will meet enrollment goals and provide quality data remains a challenge for sponsors and CROs. In order to improve the site selection process and decrease the number of zero enrolling sites, many sponsors/CROs have implemented dedicated staff or entire departments which focus on improving communication with sites to better understand their capabilities, experience, and access to patients. This interactive workshop offers sponsors, CROs, and investigator sites an opportunity to openly discuss innovative approaches and organizational models focused on investigator site relationship management. Discussions will address best practices of how sponsors and CROs are communicating accurate information to investigator sites and how sites are being selected. Conclusive findings from last year's workshop will be presented along with two brief presentations from a sponsor and investigative site. Due to workshop format, seating will be limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. The Pennsylvania Convention Center has stringent regulations on maximum room capacities, and they are strictly enforced. Once all seats are occupied, DIA will be required to close the workshop, and no more participants will be admitted. Interested attendees are encouraged to arrive at workshops early in order to ensure seating. Please note, as a workshop with interactivity, this event will not be recorded.

Learning Objectives:
Identify improved techniques at investigative sites for communicating capabilities to clients to best position themselves for future studies and describe how to effectively manage relationships
Discuss how to implement proactive, innovative approaches to decrease study start up time lines and drive down cost.
