Scenario Based Learning Day: Costing Clinical Research

Designed for those responsible for costing commercial clinical research, do you want:
…confidence in your approach?
… to always accurately cover your real costs?
…to consistently negotiate sufficient budget that fully reimburses your true costs?
Yes? Then this scenario based learning day is designed for you.

This highly interactive day will enable you to examine and work through costing in detail, and get insider tips and tools to ensure confidence in your approach. You will return to your trust with the ability to assess whether your costings are:

• Comprehensive: accurately captures all additional activity
• Robust: with agreed costs for procedures and in line with guideline timings
• Reflective of actual NHS costs

How will the day work in practice?

As an attendee, you will build up budgets from hypothetical protocols using the costing template. Throughout the day delegates will have the opportunity to work through the industry template and cost out protocols for both a drug study as well as a device study. Through scenario based learning you will learn how to engage and negotiate with industry sponsors on these hypothetical protocols.

This interactive day is idea for:

Clinical research managers: responsible for managing the overall budgets and finances
Finance managers and accountants: responsible for analysing funding and costing models
Trial co-ordinators: responsible for gathering costs and inputting figures for clinical trials
