Order the DVD of this seminar

Course Description 

In this session, the content of the new 2010 draft guidance is reviewed in detail.  Perhaps more importantly, the implications of how this guidance affects the essential documentation practices and activities between the sponsor, investigator, and the reviewing IRBs are examined.  Also covered is how the guidance fits in with other recent releases by the agency that promote implementing a risk-based approach for all stakeholders in performing their regulatory requirements for FDA regulated trials.  For example, we will discuss the document's suggested expansion of the current sponsor IRB information exchange practices, which clarify the sponsor's role in regard to the IRB information submission that is vaguely spelled out in the regulations.
