Raising awareness of the importance of Global Standards for clinical research sites to ensure true patient centricity, quality and safety.

Inputting into continuous improvement of Global Clinical Research Site Accreditation to ensure, best practice, relevance, sustainability and evolution appropriate to changing global and regional perspectives.
GCSA exists to benefit of all clinical research stakeholders. Our main target audiences are:
We put patients at the heart of what we do by ensuring that processes, workforce, sites and sponsors/CROs are synergistically aligned to provide best-in-class experiences for clinical research patients before, during and after the clinical trial.
We proactively engage with patients via our GAB other groups/companies to gain patient insights and feedback and to enable patients to easily identify clinical trial opportunities.
Sites & SMOs
We enable clinical research sites to attract clinical trials through profile-raising marketing and engagement opportunities, promoting that they are following industry standard, best-in-class practices.
We work with sites and site management companies to share best practice and support continuous improvement, leading to increased capacity and better outcomes for patients and commercial clients.
Sponsors & CROs
We consult with Sponsors, CROs and sites to form and improve on best practice standards focused on increasing quality and capacity of clinical research through a “one team” approach.
GCSA enables Sponsors and CROs to easily identify “research-ready” sites through a robust, consistent and transparent assessment and accreditation system that clearly identifies where sites are on their accreditation journey.
GCSA listens to and works with policymakers at all levels to help bring about the urgent changes needed to increase capacity and speed of clinical research through best practice processes and workforce competence. Over the next three years we will work with our Global Advisory Board to scale up this work, ensuring the need for rapid change is recognized and responded to.
