What is SHARe?
A new platform for launching and supporting multisite studies and clinical trials, established by the CCTS to build on the strengths of our Partner Network. The vision is to create a truly transformational research enterprise in the Deep South.
Why Use SHARe?
- Multisite studies and clinical trials require a high degree of coordination among study sites. SHARe reduces the redundancies and eases the administrative burdens that slow typical time-to-activation. For instance, all 11 CCTS Partners have signed on to a master IRB reliance agreement, streamlining the review process.
- Multisite studies and clinical trials frequently struggle with recruitment. SHARe offers access to a large, regional, and diverse patient population. Whether you are studying a rare or chronic disease, looking for a genetic anomaly, or testing the effects of an intervention or treatment by gender, age, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or geographic location, the SHARe network increases the odds of quickly building a robust list of potential participants who meet your research criteria.
- Multisite studies and clinical trials that participate in SHARe will help spur trans-network innovation among faculty, physicians, and other health care providers, resulting in discoveries that can rapidly improve health care and, ultimately, benefit communities across the region.
