In this course you will get the basic tools to apply a risk-based approach when managing your clinical trial. We will review the principles of risk management and how to apply them within a clinical trial setting according to ICH GCP E6(R2).

You will also get the opportunity to practice the necessary skills when we look at examples from actual inspections and discuss how to apply a risk-based approach on areas where change is needed.

Along with identification and evaluation of risks in critical processes, study data and clinical trial operations, it is imperative to ensure that the necessary processes are in place. This course will allow you to appraise your current processes, people and technology with a view to improve oversight and enhance patient protection while maintaining high quality data.

We aim to provide a balance between trainer input, exercises and participant interaction.
