  • Thursday, October 27, 2016

This webinar will showcase the results of Comprehend’s 2016 ClinOps ICH E6(R2) survey and its impact on the CRO/Sponsor relationship.

In Comprehend’s previous 2016 survey of 300 global ClinOps leaders, 81% noted that meeting their milestones was their number one priority. Yet, only 22% respondents were confident that their CRO will achieve milestones on time and 92% stated it was due to the inability to investigate in real time.

In Comprehend’s subsequent survey, they benchmarked the essential elements of a compliant ICH E6 (R2) CRO Oversight program. The speakers will present results from questions such as:

  • What are your plans for training and implementation of ICH E6(R2)?
  • What are key elements of your CRO Quality Agreements and Oversight Plans?
  • Which technologies ensure real time investigations with your CROs?
  • What Quality Risk Management initiatives are you funding?

The 2016 ClinOps ICH E6 (R2) survey put the spotlight on CRO Oversight and the need for real time investigation, decision-making and collaboration. ICH E6 (R2) is meant to encourage more efficient approaches to clinical trial design, conduct, oversight, recording and reporting. It also updates standards regarding electronic records and essential documents. The new guidance specifically highlights the need for Sponsors to ensure CROs are accountable for all responsibilities transferred to them. Comprehend’s 2016 ClinOps ICH E6 (R2) survey will give you insight into your peers’ preparedness and how they are closing the gap.
