Optimising Your Research Budget

Managing Financial and Personnel Resources for Senior Staff

“Thanks for a great session. It provided helpful tips on what to consider when negotiating a budget. The workshop also reinforced to trial coordinators to not underestimate their value and knowledge in the workplace and that it has to be factored into a trial budget.” – Danita Kapp, Clinical Trials Coordinator, Ramsay Health  

“I enjoyed the group discussion and also being to hear what other groups use in terms of resources and their processes. The course will definitely help with identifying key points to include when budgeting and areas that may be overlooked so that the quality of the CT remains high. I believe coordinators and management teams will benefit from this workshop.” – Anita Lo, Clinical Trials Project Manager
