TransCelerate and Medidata Discuss SDV ​Findings and Application to Risk-Based Monitoring

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical,
  • Monday, November 17, 2014

Establishing a reduced source document verification (SDV) strategy is not as simple as it sounds. How do you ensure data quality remains high when SDV is significantly reduced? And how do you determine which data gets verified and which doesn’t?

Join this complimentary webinar to hear TransCelerate and Medidata discuss the results of a data-driven analysis on the relative effectiveness of SDV—which will be published in the November 2014 issue of Therapeutic Innovation & Regulatory Science (TIRS), the official journal of DIA—as well as learn how to turn the findings into real-world practice.

During this one-hour session, the experts will also share:

  • An overview of the analysis, methods and results;
  • How to apply the results to your risk-based monitoring study design; and
  • What’s next on TransCelerate’s RBM agenda.
