Back to Webinars for IRs: Developing the Mind of a Clinical Investigator
Originally developed by SIR's Resident, Fellow and Student (RFS) Section
Presented: January 14, 2016
The overall goal of this activity is to learn the key characteristics of a well-conducted study and qualities of a sound clinical investigator. It's designed to introduce practicing IRs and IRs in training to clinical investigation in IR. This includes a basic understanding of a well-designed study, the skill set necessary to conduct one and how to manage obstacles during the process.
This activity is intended for interventional radiologists and trainees at all levels who wish to strengthen their knowledge of research studies.
As a result of participating in this activity, the learner should be able to:
Explain the key characteristics of a well-conducted study
Demonstrate how to become a rigorous clinical investigator
Detect and manage real world issues during a study while maintaining subject safety/study integrity
