Reader Comments:

“As a clinical research professional with 20-plus years of experience, I feel this book should be a required tool for all new and experienced coordinators. This is the most practical tool for clinical research instruction I have ever seen. Dr. Woodin does an excellent job highlighting and thoroughly elucidating all the components needed to coordinate a research study in an efficient and compliant way. Anyone working in the field of clinical research would benefit greatly from reading this guide.”

New coordinators will find this book to be a wonderfully comprehensive introduction; seasoned coordinators will find it a valuable resource.”
