The Site Council consists of clinical research sites and site networks dedicated to the professional conduct of clinical research studies and advancement of the clinical research enterprise. We have drafted the Site Council Bill of Rights to clarify site priorities for sponsors and CROs. Sites must earn these rights by conducting clinical studies in a safe, ethical, efficient, high-quality, and timely manner. We believe that the clinical research enterprise can succeed only when study sponsors and CROs have healthy relationships with healthy sites.
The Site Council Bill of Rights consists of six fundamental rights (supported by 24 examples):
- The Right to Essential Information
- The Right to Professional Autonomy
- The Right to Fair & Timely Compensation
- The Right to Proficient Governance
- The Right to Patient Centricity
- The Right to a Collaborative Relationship
