Quality Management in Clinical Research: A Matter of Human Rights

Share Article

Xtalks presents a new and informative quality management webinar examining quality principles that help deliver superlative clinical research. The webinar takes place on December 18th, 2013 at 1:00 pm EST.

A sound Quality Management System is the underpinning of true human subject protection in clinical research. Research ethics committees are charged with protecting the rights and welfare of research participants and, along with regulatory agencies, ensuring that research sponsors and investigators meet their responsibilities to the research enterprise, which can only be realized through understanding and adopting appropriate measures to ensure quality in every aspect of the clinical trial. Only by understanding the theory and application of quality systems and their foundations with measurable outcomes can successful design and implementation of meaningful QMS be achieved.

The presenters for this webinar are leaders in their respective fields. Marianne Vanderwel, Director or the Human Research Protection Program at IRB Services, will give a brief history of quality, describe some quality principles, and lead to the ISO diagram of quality oversight. Pierre Deschamps, Adjunct Professor at McGill University’s Faculty of Law, will describe how the integration of quality principles has catapulted Toyota into a global quality leader in their industry, and how such integration is essential to improving the delivery of quality health services including health research.
