Determining appropriate parameters for including or excluding study participants is challenging and a critical aspect of protocol design.

Additionally, there will be discussion on application of eligibility criteria in CTN trials.

Learning objectives include:

  • Define areas to consider for eligibility for clinical research,
  • Understand implementation of eligibility criteria,
  • Understand implications of eligibility criteria,
  • Case study of eligibility criteria in CTN trials.

The target audience includes investigators, lead team members, and other research staff contributing to development and adherence to eligibility criteria for clinical trials.
