Imagine if Christmas was run like a clinical trial…


In the annual Christmas blog, MRN CEO, Graham Wylie has taken a light-hearted approach to the clinical research process and imagines what Christmas would look like if it was run like a clinical trial.

From selecting a suitable site for the festivities, allocating team roles and responsibilities, adhering to Good Christmas Practice (GCP) guidelines and assigning correct Christmas Protocols  – every aspect of Christmas is imagined as a clinical trial.

With guidelines from the Congress of Christmas Legends and Anthropomorphics for Ultra Standardisation (CCLAUS), each Christmas celebration is assessed for Happiness, Anxiety and Quality, providing a HAQ score. Scores are included in the overall monitoring report by the Noel Inspector Certified Experienced (NICE) Elf to evaluate success and revise procedures where appropriate for future festivities.

If you’re in the mood for some festive fun, see the full protocol presentation here:

Season’s greetings from the MRN, we wish you a happy and prosperous New Year.
