About this book

This book provides insights into how to be a productive clinical researcher via real-life case examples of successful clinical research -- and also clinical research gone awry.  Through these examples of success and failure, the book develops a blueprint for building a career in clinical research.

 

Future medical practice depends on the quality of the clinical trials to which drugs, devices, and treatment procedures are subjected today.  However, clinical trials are not easy to do, and many physicians and health care providers who attempt clinical research struggle in this endeavor, primarily because of lack of instruction. Clinical Research aims to fill the gap between training and research through case studies of a long-time clinical researcher’s rich and varied experiences.

Reviews

“Within the general topic of clinical research, the book Clinical Research: Case Studies of Successes and Failures focuses on the many pitfalls that may occur when embarking on clinical research from the perspective of a 45-year career in clinical research on 4 continents. … this book is of the greatest value to anyone who contemplates engaging into any form of clinical research at any stage in their professional career. Accomplished researchers will find it equally interesting and enlightening.” (Gabriella Iohom, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 23 (6), December, 2016)

“This case-studies book draws the attention of new researchers to the many pitfalls they can encounter while advancing the knowledge base of medicine. … This book is informative and extremely entertaining for those with research experience and is a form of remote mentorship for those less experienced. I highly recommend it to all involved in research, from the student level to the experienced clinician. There is wisdom for all.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2015)
