Research indicates that clinical interviewing skill is a key factor in enhancing signal detection and can greatly influence a trial’s success or failure. To provide the highest levels of rater training, MedAvante offers enriched Rater Readiness training, a superior approach that puts extraordinary emphasis on the rater's applied interviewing skills which is representative of real world trial conditions.
All rater training programs do not provide the same level of thoroughness and depth as MedAvante's Rater Readiness program:
- MedAvante trainers spend 5.5-16 hours per rater in applied interviewing training vs 10 minutes in other commercial programs
- Has trained raters throughout the world
- Provides a unique combination of conceptual knowledge with intensive applied clinical skills training and testing
- Is the only rater training program that has been empirically validated to effectively train in both concepts and clinical skills
MedAvante's Rater Readiness Training is also the first step to level set raters for CQC, quality control by Centralized Expert Trainers.
MedAvante's team of expert trainers is composed of research scientists and clinicians who are thought leaders in rater training and assessment. Each MedAvante senior scientist has engaged in funded research examining improved assessment methodologies, has authored psychiatric scales and/or has led efforts to update current scales.
Rater Readiness can help sponsors increase objectivity in their CNS clinical trials. The result can be greater certainty in maximizing the value proposition for CNS products and delivering effective therapies for treating debilitating CNS diseases.
