Support from the CDTRP*

The CDTRP can provide support to help cover the cost of an economic, legal, ethics, or social analysis to accompany your study. This analysis is intended to enhance the scope of your primary study and provide a further understanding of the social and economic impact of the research. This support can be used to support your existing collaborations, or we can help you identify potential collaborators to work with you.

Clinical studies can request use of the CDTRP’s independent Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) to help monitor progress and adverse events and provide arms-length advice on patient safety and trial accrual. The CDTRP can provide access to the DSMB as an in-kind resource to your study, upon approval of the DSMB.

CDTRP will provide support to integrate patient, family, or donor (PFD) partners on your research team. PFD partners are fully integrated team members that bring their lived experience and expertise to enhance the study. The PFD partners would also be part of our Patient, Family and Donor Partnership Platform and have access to training and mentorship.

The CDTRP can connect investigators to the right experts for advice in designing and running clinical trials, including access to methodological support, contract research organization, support identifying contacts at sites for multisite studies, and facilitating a review panel for a trial protocol

The CDTRP Education and Career Development Platform will integrate and support trainee(s) through a wide variety of educational activities and mentorship.

We can assist with communication of your project through our monthly Theme calls and Annual Scientific Meeting. We can coordinate the development, translation (French/English), and dissemination of a FAST FACTS document to communicate with and educate both the public and experts in the field on your research topic. Project outputs can be shared via our diverse communication channels, including social media, and educational materials and resources for patients, families and donors can be shared through the CDTRP Patient Portal.
