On the heels of TransCelerate’s successful roll-out of the common protocol template (CPT), the organization’s common clinical study report (CSR) template was first publicly released in December 2018 and is being adopted across the industry. An updated technology-enabled version was publicly released December 2019 and CSR considerations for studies disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic were released in May 2020. Learn the story behind this thoughtfully designed CSR template, including the collaborative development process and key decisions of the template design. Also discussed are how the template encourages adoption of a lean authoring approach, the advantages of the TransCelerate CSR template, and how to implement the template for the next CSR you write.

This webinar is based, in part, on the popular session at the 2019 AMWA Medical Writing & Communication Conference.
