The National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN), established by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), has developed a comprehensive set of web-based standardized Trial Progress Reports (TPR) to use as a management tool to effectively monitor the progress of on-going clinical trials in real-time. These reports track the progress of each protocol within the CTN from the date of first randomization to final closeout and publication of main results. This poster describes in detail the TPR and the way its use can provide both a big-picture view of the NIDA CTN protocols and a very detailed view to meet the needs of a varied audience. The TPR has allowed the NIDA CTN leadership and protocol teams to monitor and intervene in the critical aspects of recruitment, retention, data quality, and treatment implementation to improve on the overall quality of the research being conducted.
