CRA Current Practice Update: Impact of the FDA BIMO Program

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

Course Description

The FDA announced in 2006 an initiative to modernize the regulation of clinical trials, including the BIMO inspections program. This includes conducting inspections and other assessments earlier in the development of a potential product to build quality into the clinical trial upfront rather than assessing it at trial completion. From this initiative, the FDA has generated new guidance and regulation that directly affect the performance of the sponsor monitor. The initiative is a dynamic process and this web seminar tracks the updates that directly affect monitoring. Examples of how to implement the agency requirements and recommendations into current practices and specific projects are also covered.
