MAY 2020 Research Alert

This month we added four new studies to the Best Practice Database, the research repository for Best Practices, LLC. This month's new studies focus on three topical areas: Medical Affairs training; Field Medical Teams, in particular Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) in the MENA region; and Investigator Initiated Trials. The first study examines key issues around training in the Medical Affairs function, including knowledge development, onboarding, and staffing. The second new document deals with managing MSLs in the MENA region (which includes the Middle East and North Africa in this study). The last two new studies address Investigator Initiated Trials (IITs), with the third document covering structure and responsibilities and the fourth document examining resource allocation and communication.

The new Best Practices, LLC studies listed below under Newly Added Research explore how leading companies have made their operations more effective across these different areas.
