NHS Commercial Clinical Research - Costings in Practice
This interactive day will share practical guidance for costing commercial and NHS trials – drawing you into the detail of the research process so that you can identify costing problems and anomalies. Through case study examples, you will solidify your understanding, control your finances and learn how to work effectively with research.
By sharing systems and procedures, strategies and logic, this NHS course will help you to identify what is not reasonable, spot errors and correct formula. When confidence in costing is essential for effective control, this practical NHS course will help your learning by working through actual studies of difficult costing.
By working through examples of actual studies of difficult costing, this NHS study day will share cost templates and protocols, identifying potential problems and showing you what to look for. When many R&D managers are not costing from the beginning, this NHS workshop will offer practical guidance on how to pick up a costing sheet and check through it thoroughly.
If you don’t have an NHS background then this day will fill the gap in your knowledge, in terms of what research is involved. Aimed at clinical research staff at all levels, this is a participative seminar is ideal for:
- Clinical Researchers: focusing on the overall budgets and finances
- Finance Officers and Accountants: dedicated to keeping track of costs, income and invoicing
- Trial Co-ordinators: responsible for gathering costs and inputting figures for clinical trials
