The last liaison coordinators’ RALi* meeting of the year took place on December 2, 2016. Q-CROC is proud to point out that this was the 50th edition of this recurring event that brings together different hospitals, allowing them to discuss current initiatives, their needs and successes as well as collaborate within an actual network.
This meeting was devoted to consolidating discussion and communication channels between and within hospital teams, introducing new recommendations for good clinical practices (ich.org), and providing updates from the Canadian Cancer Clinical Trials Network (3ctn.ca). The team also welcomed new liaison coordinators, shared very positive news and gave an overview of the events to come in 2017. Q-CROC would like to thank the liaison coordinators who strive to improve the effectiveness of clinical research in their respective sites and across Quebec.
