  • Wednesday, September 03, 2014

Protocol pooling is a methodology to identify clinical supply materials further out in the supply chain. An example is Point of Distribution (POD) where it increases efficiency and applies precise
control of product inventory and supply. This webinar will explore the benefits, challenges and methodologies for using POD and Protocol Pooling philosophies.

Depending on the type of project, it is possible to use bright stock that can be utilized across multiple protocols by identifying the supplies at the distribution or depot point. POD clinical labeling may also lend itself as a benefit for working on Investigator Initiated Trials (IITs) to increase efficiency. Clinical labeling design plays a very important part in successful POD projects as well as Protocol Pooling scenarios. Various clinical labeling configurations will also be described.

Take away points will include definitions, benefits and quality challenges of POD labeling. Points of discussion will include the use of IRT (Interactive Response Technology), planning and pooling of supplies.

Key Learning Objectives:

1. Understand what POD and Pooling of supplies entails and how it is used in today’s clinical supplies arena
2. Understand why and when POD labeling is useful
3. Understand quality challenges for POD
4. Identify different label configuration options for Protocol Pooling
