Strategic Goal Committee 1 - National Clinical and Translational Research Capability

The mission of the National Clinical and Translational Research Capability Strategic Goal Committee is to improve all processes related to the development, approval, activation, enrollment, and completion of clinical trials. The methods that the Committee will use to develop and implement data-driven process improvement include: pilot and mature cross-consortium studies to validate and implement measurements of process milestones and completion times, the development of standardized definitions of metrics to be used as tools for process evaluation and improvement, and an annual workshop to be held each June to exchange lessons learned and best practices.
