How can universities ensure that all their clinical trial results are fully reported? Universities across Europe are now beginning to address the problem, but many do not know where to begin.
In this new case study, King’s Health Partners Clinical Trials Office share their experiences, and provide hands-on advice to other universities and clinical trial units that aspire to excellence in reporting the outcomes of medical research.
The Office manages registry entries for one UK university and three public bodies, has by now uploaded 103 trial results onto EudraCT, the European trial registry.
Key points covered:
Auditing trial portfolios
Gaining access to individual researchers’ EudraCT accounts
Updating the status of trials post-completion
Retrospective results reporting for older trials
Monitoring and tracking registry entries
Workload estimates per trial
Ensuring trial designs are aligned with registry reporting requirements
Process management and staff training
Interestingly, King’s Health Partners Clinical Trials Office achieved a stellar performance without being able to draw on additional resources, illustrating the value of having a core funded clinical trial unit (or research governance unit) that can take charge of the process.
