End of Year Evaluation & 2014 Goal Setting

  • Dec 11, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

What did your clinical operations team do really well in 2013? What development goals have you set for your department in the first half of 2014?

Come join us for a facilitated session where everyone will contribute to the discussion. Each individual will participate and the group will choose three topics for collective brainstorming. Come prepared with topics that interest you (Risk-Based Monitoring, Adaptive Trial Design, Patient Recruitment & Retention, CTMS or other interesting clinical trial technologies, ePRO, etc.). Feel free to show off a little and share generally what you achieved this year. Any obstacles or struggles you want to share with the group? Any don't miss conferences your team will be attending in 2014?

Hear about pilot programs by your ClinOps Peers. Be more efficient next year and gather inspiration for your non study-specific goal-setting from a variety of participants.

Real Staffing has sponsored this event for us. We have invited Senior Clinical Operations managers who work in drug development. ClinOps Pros from device and diagnostics will also be present. All levels and all phases of clinical development are welcome.

This event will be held on Wednesday, December 11th, after work.  Time for Networking will be provided from 6-6:30. The facilitated brainstorming session starts promptly at 6:30. Please make every effort to be on time as we will start and end each breakout session with timed precision.  If we run short on time, we can easily regroup after the first of the year for another ClinOps Toolkit meetup in the Spring.

This event space has been provided by Veeva eTMF. Register now for the location and details. Let's meet in their beautiful downtown San Francisco workspace for our wrap-up meetup for the year. Parking is quite limited in the evenings and expensive so please consider taking the BART.

Register in advance as space at this event is limited to 30 attendees. The building security will require a list of first and last names for all attendees.

For fun, of course! At the ClinOps Toolkit meetup, you'll interact with other solution-minded ClinOps Pros. We can exchange great ideas for operating clinical trials all in a safe and confidential session. You will never be asked to disclose any proprietary or private information but you will look like a superstar in front of your team when you return to work with so many great ideas for 2014. 

Hope to see you there - RSVP now!

    I had a great time at the last meet up and was looking forward to tonight, but unfortunately, I am feeling under the weather today and won't be able to make it. I am looking forward to the next one!

      SF is a bit far from the South Bay if you aren't feeling 100% - well fill you in on the highlights - have a great night!

      No worries, Ellie from Real Staffing will be writing up a summary for anyone who misses it to post on the blog by next week. Catch you at a future event - feel better soon!

    Sorry I'm in SoCal that day!

      Liz, you will be missed. Can you pop on twitter in the next 48 hours and tell us what topics you are most excited to learn more about in 2014? Use hashtag #opscareer @clinopstk or send me an email to [masked] and I'll add your contributions to our whiteboard. We'll see you again this Spring, the ClinOps Toolkit team is putting together the Jan-Apr event calendar in the next few weeks with some placeholder dates and topics.

    Hey Nadia, is there a dialin conf scheduled for this event?

    December 9, 2013

    • Nadia

      No, to participate in the event, folks must RSVP in advance due to building security restrictions. It is a brainstorming type event and not well-suited to a conference call. To fully participate you must attend. Instead, to send your submissions to the conversation before and during the event comment here, shoot me an email to [masked]­m or use twitter/facebook hashtag #opscareer to join online. There will not be a recording or live streaming in order to promote open discussion. Ellie Laidlaw of Real Staffing has kindly volunteered to write a blog post summary ClinOps Toolkit for the benefit of anyone who can't make it. This will be a fun one - hope you don't miss out! I do understand that many are traveling at this time of year and not available to attend.

      I'm sorry to miss you, too. Have a blast at your party and if you have any proud accomplishments for 2013 and interesting goals for 2014 just shoot me a note to [masked] and I'll make sure they get on the board as possible discussion topics next week. Nadia
