The purpose of the development initiative is to contribute to increased quality and effectiveness in the implementation of clinical studies by establishing collaboration between the Quality Assurance (QA) functions in the nodes, and spreading good examples of well-functioning work processes between nodes and other collaborative partners.
Well-functioning quality systems with deliberate work processes and templates are a prerequisite for being able to conduct clinical studies efficiently and with good quality. In order to contribute to this, a previous development initiative was carried out in which the following proposals were made:
The aim is to further develop and implement the above proposals, including providing suggestions on how the nodes will work with QA, how national collaboration will be carried out, and how to make competence available to other clinics, researchers and partners. In addition, it includes getting a functioning QA network for the node organizations in place.
The project started in March 2018 and is expected to be completed in Q2 2019. The initiative is divided into the following steps:
