Risk-Based Thinking: How Monitors Can Develop an Auditor’s Perspective

Upcoming Courses

Course #: BI15705
July 31, 2023 | Interactive Web Seminar
9:30 AM - 11:00 AM Eastern

Course Description

The regulations require that sponsors ensure the selection of qualified monitors and the proper monitoring of clinical investigations. However, sponsors are frequently cited by the FDA for failure to meet those requirements. These regulatory communications note that although monitors might have identified issues, they did not appreciate the significance of those findings. As a result, opportunities to promptly secure compliance might be missed.

Clinical research is structured to incorporate monitoring processes more frequently than auditing. Yet as monitoring integrates a risk-based approach, monitors can utilize many auditing techniques to assist them in more effectively performing their tasks and meeting their obligations. This web seminar will explore the processes for critically reviewing findings to discern the implications and impact on subject safety and data integrity.

Learning Objectives

  • Utilize auditing techniques when performing monitoring tasks
  • Define “proper monitoring” and who is responsible for its conduct
  • Discuss monitoring findings within the context of regulatory risk
  • Review standard monitoring report templates and discuss ways to adapt them to develop a compliance assessment
  • Describe processes for discerning patterns in information reviewed
  • Explore methods for developing monitoring tools that facilitate a systems review and communication

Who Should Attend

  • Clinical Research Associates
  • Clinical Research Associate Managers
  • Project Managers
