Synopsis of Clinical Trial Participation

Olathe Health Consultants in Pulmonary lead research coordinator with 5 physicians and 2 Nurse Practitioners. I’ve participated in 80 plus clinical trials. Hospital-based trials include severe sepsis, ARDS, hospital acquired pneumonia and persistent pneumothorax. In addition office-based trials include Pulmonary Fibrosis, COPD, Asthma, Chronic Bronchitis, Bronchiectasis, Restless Legs Syndrome, Insomnia, and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Experience over this extensive time frame has included many multinational pharmaceutical companies, Contract Research Organizations (CRO), and both local and Central IRB’s.

These trials have primarily been pharmaceutical trials but also have evaluated medical devices in inhalational drug delivery and monitoring chest tube air leaks in pneumothorax. Phase 3A studies have been the most common for our group, but I have also participated in Phase 2, Phase 3B, and Phase 4 studies.

Skills Developed as a Clinical Research Coordinator

Flexibility – Adapting from a role of an office-based patient care staff to the complexities of responding to IRB questions, explaining investigational medications and protocols to patients, using paper based then electronic documentation on web-based databases, and working with CROs, monitors and pharmaceutical companies.

Patient Focused – Setting priorities on adapting to a patient’s needs in care and effective communication helped me achieve < 5% drop out of subject participation in my studies.

Incorporating Technology – From paper-based patient records to electronic medical records for source document, using encrypted online databases, teaching E-diary device use to patients with no computer experience, using Excel spreadsheets, performing EKG’s and spirometry with notebook computer-based devices.

Taking on new responsibilities- Working with my PI on contract negotiations on budget development, cost estimates, time management, planning and achieving patient recruitment strategies. Training and teaching sub investigators, new research coordinators, and office staff on policies and procedures of trials. Packaging and shipping lab specimens, and trial materials.

Learning from constructive criticism – With the stringent regulatory environment of clinical trials, I have learned from the many research professionals involved in the multiple layers of review of my data collection, and documentation.

Team Approach –Working towards strengthening long-term working relationships led to a research team with 18 years of success at the same clinic. I believe in developing a camaraderie and shared recognition of successes that lead to successful practices both financially and professionally.
