Why to work with local CROs in Turkey?

BACKGROUND AND USE OF DATABASE
Local CROs in Turkey have a more expanded database of investigators and sites and they are in touch with many KoLs to collaborate with during the set-up phase of the studies since they have a long-established background in clinical trials in Turkey.
RELATIONSHIPS
Local CROs are in close relationship with both Ethics Committees and Ministry of Health. The committees and the MoH sometimes can have the opportunity to accelerate the bureaucratic pathways for the local CROs which is an advantage considering the timelines.
TRAINING
Local CROs still serve in our country as a school for clinical trials . Most of the global CROs use the CRAs in only one expertise area instead of training the CRA as a project manager dealing with all activities during a clinical trial makes the integrity of the trial to fail and communication issues generally occur affecting the integrity of the trial.
MICROMANAGEMENT
Local CROs generally employs senior project managers supporting all the CRAs working for the trials as a supervisor with long experience in that area. This helps to focus on the trials with a micromanagement aspect and gives the opportunity to the sponsors to always see a back up person and an experienced controller to help the study to be conducted.
COST EFFECTIVENESS
Local CROs are more cost effective including the services fees and the services provided compares with the global CROs. Mainly most of the issues are followed up as a part of project management activities without having separate prices for each and every service item.

SOLUTION PROVIDER
With that wide experience in clinical trials in Turkey, local CROs also have an insight of probably issues that can occur in a trial during design, plan and conduct of the trial with pre-planned resolutions for this issues.
