As clinical trials become more complex and there is increasing demand for effi ciency and cost effectiveness, the knowledge and skills required to manage all aspects of a clinical project are critical.
This course provides a comprehensive foundation in clinical project management. Using the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) as a guide, participants will be taught how to apply project management strategies, tools and techniques to their clinical trial projects.

In two independent modules of three days each, the following topics will be covered:

Part I:

  • Project Definition and Organisational Context
  • Project Management Tools and Techniques
  • Scope Management, Resource Estimating and Budget Management of a Clinical Trial

Part II:

  • Project Quality Management
  • Project Risk Management
  • Communication and Stakeholder Management
  • Procurement Management
  • Team Management and Leadership Skills

Clinical Project Management I and II are taught as two independent modules. Participants will gain the most benefit from the course if they enrol in both modules.
This course includes many practical examples and case studies which will enable participants to successfully implement and manage their own clinical trial projects eff ectively.
The course is based on Alexander Gissler’s (PMP, Project Management Consultancy and Training) concept for Clinical Project Management.
