I have worked in the pharmaceutical industry since 1997 and gained practical clinical experience in the areas of Cardiology, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, Neurology, Psychiatry, Hepatology, Oncology and more.
Over time, I realized the chronic shortage of qualified professionals along with the lack of know-how and basic skills of newly hired nurses who convert to clinical research, which oftentimes results in poor performance or terminations. Research centers also lack the time and resources to support and train staff, which exacerbates the enormous expense of clinical trials.
I then understood the urgency of offering accelerated and personalized training that is specific to the protocol to be executed, and that allows practical experience in the workplace, with the aim of leading the clinical site to success.
I have been an independent consultant and am the founder of Delva Consulting Inc. in 2007. I am bilingual in French and English, and hold a BSc. in Nursing Sciences from Université de Montreal. I am also certified with practical experience in GCP and ICH regulations, pharmaceutical industry Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and safety reporting.
My career spans across all phases of clinical research (I – IV), more notably as a Clinical research associate (CRA), Project Manager in CROs and biotechnology firms, Study Manager and more recently as Clinical research coordinator at the CrCHUM in Montreal (Centre de recherche du Centre hospitalier universitaire de Montréal).
My passion to give back to the success of professionals in the field, resulted in the formation of CRTSolution, which allows me to have a direct impact on the contribution of individuals to the overall success in clinical research studies and ultimately in bringing innovative and quality treatments to the patients and the population in general.
