Feasibility review of clinical trial protocols is a critical step to study intake submission. To add resources to improve this process, the Cancer Clinical Trials Office (CCTO)/Infusion Treatment Area (ITA) taskforce developed a brief nursing feasibility form to support a timely (early) checking of the best/appropriate location (Service Center) to deliver a particular research treatment based on its requirements.
The form, also vested by the Clinical Translational Research Unit (CTRU) and Oncology Inpatient Units at Stanford Hospital, provides a tool of communication between clinical research coordinators (CRCs) and Service Centers (SCs) that confirms their ability to provide nursing service for a new project. This form helps the ongoing efforts to standardize the CCTO existing feasibility process while ensuring that nursing services, may they be planned for the ambulatory or inpatient setting or both, are reviewed prior the creation of the budget and the IRB submission to shorten the study start-up process timeline.
You will find the new tool in Coordinator Corner in the CRFs/Forms tab under the subheading “RedCap Forms”
- Clinical Trials Feasibility for Nursing Services (PDF) – Jul 13, 2020
How to use the form:
1. Follow the instructions to reach out to the appropriate Service Center Liaison(s) with the completed form.
2. Obtain electronic signature to attest early feasibility approval to conduct the trial in their SCs
3. The signed form is then to be uploaded onto the REDCap feasibility form as an attachment to provide evidence of study viability in a particular SC for clinical manger review/approval
