The Role of the Monitor in a Risk-Based Monitoring Program

Clinical Trials, Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical, Pharmaceutical Regulation,
  • Thursday, June 12, 2014

Risk-based monitoring is no longer an innovative theory but a real-world practice—today’s life science R&D leaders are actively redefining their site monitoring programs.

But what does this mean for current on-site monitoring practices? Will monitors spend less time on source data verification (SDV) and more time on investigator and site training, source data review (SDR) and supporting recruitment efforts? Will centralized site quality management tools deliver monitors the information they need to determine which sites need more attention and which need less? And how will adaptive monitoring methods impact visit scheduling?

Join us for this complimentary webinar to learn:

  • Industry-wide monitoring trends, from the annual survey
  • How monitors spend their time on-site to support activities like recruitment and training
  • A methodology for triggered monitoring visit schedules
