FDA Guidance: IRB Continuing Review of Clinical Investigations

Please check back later for this seminar's current schedule, or review our other live seminars for similar courses.

Course Description

This course will review the content of the 2012 final guidance for continuing review of Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved research. In response to changes within the industry and the conduct of clinical research, the FDA highlights an updated approach to sponsor, IRB, and Clinical Investigator interaction by encouraging investigators and sponsors to ensure that IRBs receive meaningful study-wide information, particularly when doing so may assist IRBs in reviewing the studies and protecting subjects. This guidance also recommends particular areas where IRBs should focus to ensure meaningful review and approval. In this web seminar, the implications of how this guidance affects the essential documentation practices and activities between the sponsor, investigator, and the reviewing IRBs will be examined.
