The overall goal of this activity is to provide examples of clinical trials that have been developed through innovative thinking and introduce learners to the process of taking action on an innovative idea. This course is designed to introduce learners to the process of taking an innovative idea through the initial steps to gain support for a clinical investigation. This is accomplished through a journal-club format in which a select number of trials are reviewed. The moderator applies these trials towards a dialogue on how investigators can become involved in innovative research.
This activity is intended for interventional radiologists and trainees at all levels with special interest in innovative research.
As a result of participating in this activity, the learner should be able to:
Identify prior innovative clinical trials that have led to the development of an interventional procedure.
Define fundamental principles of successful innovative clinical trials
Apply their knowledge of the initial steps necessary to start a clinical trial.
