Clinical trial governance encompasses sponsorship, contracts, finance, confidentiality, trial insurance and professional indemnity and scientific and ethical review. You can find guidance and template documents relating to all of these topics throughout GlobalHealthTrials.org or you can contribute your own material to help others.
