The Course

In this highly practical course we look at the root cause of typical inspection findings and work with delegates to develop personal corrective and preventative action plans. Through case studies, we will address challenging monitoring situations and develop strategies for investigator selection, fraud detection, improving patient recruitment and for motivating investigator sites. Delegates will explore how both technology and legislation will impact the role of the monitor.
We also discuss key principles in project planning and execution to allow experienced CRAs to begin to develop the skills required for a Lead CRA or Clinical Trial Manager role. Delegates will learn how to apply project planning principles to monitoring to improve efficiency.
It is recommended that delegates have a minimum of two years of monitoring experience.
