OUR TOPIC: Workforce Gaps Post RBM: It is Time to "DIG" in!

SPEAKER: Sandra "SAM" Sather, MS BSN, CCRC & CCRA - Vice President of Clinical Pathways, LLC

OVERVIEW: Training-up current resources and hiring qualified competent team members has been the biggest challenge for sponsors and CROs! Using other functional areas results in the same challenge. Come to this presentation to discuss this global risk and the gaps, and more importantly discover where to dig to find the solutions and also how to supply the team the right skills set!

Attend this session and you should be able to

*      Recognize the gaps in sponsor/CRO quality systems to support the needed super team
*      Discuss what supports the new skill set
*      Discover the needed skills sets that are not inherent and how to "train-up" teams

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER: Sandra "SAM" Sather's current focus of consulting is to promote clinical quality systems for Sponsors/CROs and Investigators/Research Institutions. She has over 30 years of clinical experience, has a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and a Master of Science degree in Education with a Specialization in Training and Performance Improvement. She is a frequent speaker at industry conferences, and SAM has authored and presented dozens of courses for clinical research training programs in various functional areas. She has multiple training, monitoring and project management experiences of diverse size, and objectives with a variety of global clients.
