Event Details

This clinical compliance training will help attendees understand how they can develop and implement a Quality Assurance (QA) program at their clinical research site that ensures the staff are properly trained and that the research is carried out in accordance with regulatory expectations.

Why Should You Attend:
Is your site carrying out clinical research in accordance with regulatory expectations? You have training requirements for investigators and coordinators, is that enough? Is it worthwhile training that covers necessary topics? A Quality Assurance (QA) Program is the vehicle to help you answer these questions and more.
Quality assurance is often confused with monitoring or auditing. Understanding the principles of quality assurance and how QA differs from monitoring and auditing is critical to establishing a program that enhances compliance without creating unnecessary redundancy.
This webinar will show how one can develop a mechanism for providing feedback from QA to enhance education and training of their investigators and coordinators. If you belong to a site, or work with a site, that relies on external sources - monitoring visits, IRB review, FDA audit, etc. - for evaluation and feedback, then your site will benefit from this training.
In this 90-minute session, attendees will learn fundamental concepts and strategies to get their site started with a QA program that verifies clinical research practices as they are operationalized at the local site.
