Abstract:

Introduction: Research competition induces hospitals to engage in clinical trials. Many hospitals are launching clinical trial research programs but may experience many initial difficulties mainly in the organization. Aim:The purpose of this review was to investigate the development of an operational plan for conducting clinical research. Methodology: A search was conducted for critical articles collected through: PubMed, Google Scholar and MEDICI during the period 2000-2020. Results: Clinical trials are designed to control the safety and efficacy of experimental therapies. However, researchers often find it difficult to find patients in clinical trials. Before starting a clinical trial, coordinators should ensure the development of organizational engagement and research culture, the accurate evaluation of available resources, the definition of the target population, secure appropriate and adequate staffing, the definition of the policies and procedures necessary to attract the candidate patients and the study in a safety and quality environment. Hospitals and other health service providers compete to form ideal clinical environments that can serve as the primary point of contact for pharmaceutical companies wishing to conduct clinical trials at their premises. Conclusions: Although the penetration of clinical studies into the health system has demonstrated many benefits for patients and the development of medical care and innovation, as well as for the financial support of hospitals and their general contribution to the economy of a country, their implementation is restricted mainly by bureaucracy, institutional and political failures.
