Due later in 2017, we are gathering clinical trials metrics. This initiative will provide a pulse check of Canada’s clinical trials performance. Metrics that could be vital for the future of clinical trials in Canada include:

  • Operational metrics, such as timelines for contract and budgets negotiations, research ethics boards
  • Quantitative metrics attesting to the high quality of clinical trial data in Canada
  • Investment metrics, in particular total investment in clinical trials in Canada, which will provide a snapshot of how Canada compares to its global competitors
  • Quantitative metrics providing a reference for the numbers of new trials, newly opened sites and patient recruitment.
