Strategies for Query Resolution

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

Course Description

The generation of queries and updating of the clinical trials database from query resolution and other external sources is a crucial step in clinical data generation. Database updates must link to the proper locations, and data must be checked for validity and consistency prior to updating the clinical trials database.

Updating existing data fields requires attention to the type of data error being corrected or incomplete data being updated. An audit trail should be used to track changes. Errors in data of primary key fields require special attention. Errors detected in data submitted by a vendor, prior to updating the clinical trials database, should be reported to the vendor for correction of the source data. Database updates from external data sources require planning and validation before the process is implemented.

This web seminar will examine the strategy for the generation of valid queries, the operational processes that govern the evaluation of query resolution, and the subsequent database updates as required.
