  • Site Quality Management to Optimize Risk-Based and Centralized Monitoring

    In today’s clinical development environment, the quest for improved data quality at a lower cost is of paramount importance to all research organizations. Given that monitoring represents upwards of 30% of the cost of a clinical trial, a risk-based model for monitoring has become a growing and crucial component in this search, and recent FDA guidance has lent further support for this paradigm. This webinar will break down the issues related to the implementation and tracking of a risk-based monitoring program through the utilization of site quality management as well as the process and organizational challenges of adopting site quality management and centralized monitoring.
