Poor trial design or planning is the main cause of issues or errors occurring in clinical trials. No amount of statistical methods can rescue poor trial design.
Study start-up is a stressful time. Investors, executives, and trialists push to reach the first milestone of recruiting patient ONE, this makes it easy to miss opportunities to reduce recruitment requirements or study duration through careful planning. It is important to not rush the study start-up process and to ensure your study is primed for efficiency and precision.
