Quality Assurance/Quality Improvement

The CCTS recognizes the importance of ensuring human subject protection and quality data in clinical research. We partner with our investigators to achieve this through our Quality Assurance/Quality Improvement Program, which provides ongoing support, education, study management tools, and best practice recommendations.

Studies that fall under the purview of the QA/QI program include:

  • Studies with funding from the CCTS pilot, KL2 or TL1 programs

  • Studies being review by the CCTS Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB)

  • Studies utilizing the following CCTS services:

    • Clinical Research Unit 

    • Regulatory Knowledge and Support Unit

    • Functional Assessment and Body Composition 

    • Biomarker Analysis Lab
