ABSTRACT
The article focuses on clinical trial (CT) reviews conducted at the Children's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts regarding mistakes at CT sites. According to Eunice Yim Newbert, manager of education and quality improvement program at the hospital, CT sites sometimes adapt recruitment methods that were not reported to the Institutional Review Board (IRB). Newbert emphasizes the need for CT sites to focus on study documentation.
