Quality & Integrity
Woodland International Research Group opened its new clinical research facility in Little Rock, 16-bed CRU designed specifically for child and adolescent inpatient trials in special populations including those suffering from CNS disorders and diseases in other therapeutic areas. The unit features bedside gaming, an indoor gymnasium, air hockey, crafts and other activities as well as a secure outdoor area / fresh air space. Importantly, the unit’s retention program includes education and tutoring. The facility was designed for the comfort of patients and family with two beds per room which allows caregivers to stay overnight. It is also equipped with separate exam and procedure rooms. The staff consists of a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist, a board-certified family practitioner also boarded in pain and addiction, RNs, LPNs, PCTs, nutritionists, CRCs, neuropsychiatric raters, phlebotomists, as well as regulatory, QC and ACLS certified staff. Recent pediatric Phase I/IP studies performed at WIRG included schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, ADHD, depression and GERD.
The unit is also being utilized for adult and elderly Phase 1-2a inpatient trials, sleep disorder trials, and more complex studies with smaller cohorts, required serial PK draws, PSG, and other specialized procedures allowing separation from the adult psychiatric populations on the larger 40 bed main unit.
