The article explores some examples of how clinical trial (CT) sites can avoid common mistakes in CT research. An efficient way to find problems in CT research is by collecting information through a quality improvement (QI) program. According to Eunice Yim Newbert, manager of education and quality improvement program at Children's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, a common mistake in CT research involves the informed consent (IC) documentation and process. CT sites need to keep the most recently approved IC form in an electronic library.
