Minimally Disruptive Research: A Respectful Approach to Conducting Clinical Studies
2017 SOCRA Annual Conference
Sara Dick, MS, CCRP, Research Protocol Specialist, Mayo Clinic
The design and conduct of clinical studies must achieve the research goals while minimizing the work allocated to participants (clinicians and patients). Research must impose the smallest positive footprint on clinical care activities. We have come to call this, Minimally Disruptive Research. Our adherence to this new standard requires participants (both patients and clinicians) as research partners to engage with investigators at every step of the research process to ensure that all procedures result in CAREFUL and KIND Research.
