Archive: Risk-Based Auditing: Effective Compliance Strategies

Course #: BI13837
March 18, 2020

Course Description

An audit is defined as a systematic and independent examination of trial-related activities and documents to determine whether the evaluated trial-related activities were conducted, and the data were recorded, analyzed, and accurately reported according to the protocol, the sponsor’s standard operating procedures (SOPs), good clinical practice (GCP), and the applicable regulatory requirement(s). Auditing focuses on the systems that generate this data, whereas monitoring tends to focus primarily on the data. Risk-based approaches to auditing, such as focusing on the most critical data elements, are more likely to ensure subject protection and overall study quality, and will permit sponsors to focus their compliance efforts more effectively. This web seminar will provide an overview of risk-based auditing skills and techniques, and a review of recent GCP audit findings from Clinical Investigators (sites), sponsors, and Institutional Review Boards (IRBs).
