Dublin, May 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Clinical Research Project Management Training Course" conference has been added to's offering.

This professional training course is designed to help you think differently about clinical research projects. Some of the concepts like System Thinking, the Theory of Constraints and Agile Project Management are not new but are often untried in our heavily regulated environment. Other techniques like Relational Risk and Complexity are at the forefront of current research.

System Thinking is about taking a holistic view of your project and is helpful in identifying stakeholders and potential threats and opportunities. This course will look at how you assess the complexity of your project and discuss ways to mitigate its effects.


Agile project management has become very popular in other industries, but how can you be agile in a highly regulated area?

Most people are expected to be familiar with traditional Risk Management, but in addition to this, the host will look at the complementary techniques of the Theory of Constraint and Relational Risk.

Projects are not only technical systems but also social systems and both are important causes of uncertainty. Relational Risk is about the high levels of uncertainty in respect of the social system and the CURED Framework is about dealing with this uncertainty.

This course will provide you with key techniques to apply during your clinical research project to aid successful delivery.
