The scale, complexity and cost of clinical trials have increased over time. In addition there is a permanent pressure on resources for clinical trials and it is vital that those precious resources are utilized where they deliver the greatest benefit. Evolutions in technology and risk management processes offer new opportunities to increase efficiency and focus on relevant activities both within companies and on sites. Regulatory agencies have recognized this fact and are now actively promoting the implementation of risk based approaches to management of clinical trials.

This course will provide opportunities to practice the necessary skills to apply a risk based approach to monitoring activities. We will review the principles of risk management and how to apply them within a clinical research or monitoring setting. The impact of introducing a risk based approach on site processes is also considered. Along with identification and evaluation of risks to critical study data and clinical trial operations it is imperative to ensure the necessary processes are in place.

This course will allow you to appraise your current processes, people and technology with a view to improve monitoring and site efficiency and enhancing patient protection while maintaining high quality data.

The course has been designed to give a balance between trainer input, exercises and delegate interaction.
