DIA and Covance will co-host the complimentary webinar, “Risk-Based Monitoring: Regulatory Expectation and Operational Application,” on May 15 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Webinar participants from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Covance will discuss the FDA guidelines on using risk-based monitoring (RBM), which were released in August 2013, and how to apply the guidance when conducting clinical trials.
“The webinar will help pharmaceutical companies answer urgent questions about navigating the FDA guidance when applying RBM to clinical trial design and execution, and provide effective strategies for RBM implementation,” said Barbara L. Kunz, DIA global chief executive.
Industry and regulatory experts will explore practical approaches to incorporating regulatory expectations into clinical trials, focusing on how to balance resources, trial design and data quality, technology implications, risk awareness and barriers when adopting RBM.
