Study Start-up refers to everything that must take place from the first point of contact with the sponsor to the moment that the study team is ready to screen and enroll subjects, which is why Study Startup Translations are such an important aspect of the process. CSOFT’s global network of translators offers linguistic and in-field experience to help the world’s leading companies confidently conduct Study Startups.Also called SSU, study start-up encompasses all of the means required to initiate a study, generating an exceptionally intricate and well-recognized bottleneck with functions performed by numerous individuals in different locations at the sponsor, Contract Research Organization (CRO), and site management levels – every one of which needs to share and communicate data.

Clinical trials that get off to a good start are more likely to be successful trials. The study start-up phase is where this occurs, and incorporates activities such as: investigator selection, regulatory and ethics submissions, site training and ends with the site initiation visits.

The study start-up process sets a study up for ultimate success or failure, and there are key elements which can enable the conduct of the study to be more efficient and effective. A feasibility assessment is the best practice for all clinical research sites to fully evaluate the desirability and feasibility of new studies. Other best practices include establishing a communication plan, dissecting the protocol collectively, creation and utilization of study start-up tools and checklists, and techniques to assess any potential issues with protocol adherence.

With global resources and medical translation services in over 250 languages, CSOFT’s global network of translators offers linguistic and in-field experience to help the world’s leading companies confidently conduct Study Startups.
