Risk-Based Monitoring in Global Schizophrenia Trials: A 360 Degree View

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical,
  • Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Risk-based monitoring of clinical trial data for aberrant rating patterns and patient selection anomalies can be paired with audio/video surveillance to cost effectively identify at-risk sites in global schizophrenia trials.

Risk-based monitoring may be most effective when paired with a toolbox of instruments designed to enhance data quality collection, such as prompted interviews, intelligent e-scale design, and e-workbooks.

The speakers will present data and lessons drawn from risk based monitoring of 12 global schizophrenia trials involving over 80,000 visits.
