Trial Managers Group Meeting Wed 21st Dec 2006 12.30 – 2pm Trent Building, Room LG11 Minutes 1. Hywel Williams presented an overview of the CTSU aims and activities and then answered questions from the group. 2. Mara Ozolins presented an overview of general issues surrounding recruitment into clinical trials, and also gave specific examples from multi- centre studies she had worked on (Acne trial and Basal Cell Carcinoma trial). This stimulated discussion and questions from the group. 3. Jo Chalmers was due to also give a presentation about recruitment difficulties in the PATCH cellulitis trial but there was not enough time left. 4. Actions and suggestions: a. Invite a representative from R&D b. Invite the reps from the company that provide the university Clinical trials insurance to answer questions about the policy which the group felt was insufficient at times c. Once in post, invite the University governance officer along d. Set up a group email system so that advice can easily be sought from the group for specific trial management queries, in the same way as the TMN currently do. The consensus was that an email system would be preferable to a discussion forum on the website. e. Put a list (via the CTSU website?) of names and specific areas of experience (e.g. paediatric trials, medical device trials, MHRA applications etc.) so trial managers can ask other members of the group for advice. f. A suggestion for ’10 top tips’ for trial managers – could form a discussion topic for a future meeting with a documents emerging from the discussion. g. We should be pushing the Trusts to make research more prominent in the general publicity about the trust activities. This would hopefully boost recruitment (i.e. try to encourage participation in trials as something ‘normal’ to do). 5. Future meetings a. Hold meetings every 2 months b. Next meeting – continue with the recruitment topic – Jo Chalmers to present the PATCH trial recruitment data and then open up for discussion after this.
