A Comprehensive and Practical Guide to Clinical Trials provides an overview of the entire process of clinical research in one thorough and easy-to-read handbook. This book offers a clear understanding of how all of the components of a study are related to those involved in clinical research. It focuses on the practical aspects of the preparation and execution of a clinical trial and presents tools and resources to help the team understand how their responsibilities tie together with the tasks and duties of other team members; this allows for better planning and prioritisation, and can lead to more effective and successful clinical trials. With practical examples, checklists and forms, this book is a useful guide for planning and conducting clinical trials from beginning to end.
