Rater Training Reimagined
Traditional rater training is often redundant and burdensome to sites and inefficient for clinical trial sponsors. As such, Cogstate has created a rater qualification, instruction, and management program that prepares raters to administer scales to the highest standards in the timeliest way possible. Cogstate's unique approach eliminates unnecessary training, leverages customized eLearning curriculum, minimizes rater certification burden, and allows for expedited study start-up.
Training is tailored to each rater’s experience and ensures conformity with the study protocol. Each rater has a customized training curriculum.
Training is informed by a deep understanding of raters’ limitations and error patterns and uses the latest adult learning methodologies.
Grandfathering of raters is supported for those who have recently certified for the measures or demonstrated recent good performance in a central monitoring program.
Most training programs are entirely remote, saving time and money. This also allows for learning to take place at a comfortable rate.
Cogstate has developed unique systems to provide sophisticated and secure training and rater tracking (Cogstate Instructor™), as well as data management and monitoring (DataPoint®). Cogstate systems meet all relevant regulatory requirements for security and integrity of data in clinical trials, including 21 CFR Part 11.
The support procedures meet GCP guidelines.
