Critical Care

GCR’s dedicated critical care team works closely with you to meet the special challenges of critical care studies:

  • Our country-specific knowledge enables us to start treatment within the timeframe specified in the study protocol, allowing the study drug to be administered within hours of a precipitating event.
  • Our clinical team has extensive experience working with global clinical coordinating centres.
  • Understanding the expectations of local institutional review boards (IRBs) or independent ethics committees (IECs) enables GCR to assist investigative sites in preparing submission documents that result in swift approval.
  • Proven ability to overcome the inherent challenges with the informed consent process within the realm of critical care.
  • We understand the elements essential to trials involving multiple departments, such as emergency rooms, intensive care units, operating rooms, radiology units and blood banks. As a result, we are able to evaluate and select the most qualified sites for critical care trials, targeting sites that have established inter-departmental relationships. GCR also works with these sites to establish well-scripted, trial-specific plans that address all involved departments.
  • Our clinical team collaborates with the investigative site to create a site-specific recruitment strategy (SSRS) before any patients are enrolled in the study.
  • GCR’s past experiences have led to many regional/country-specific best practices with regards to how to maintain site involvement/enthusiasm.

Our clinically trained teams with therapeutic expertise in critical care trials ensure effective trial development and design.
