This webinar on clinical site audit/ inspection will outline the responsibilities of the Investigator and the clinical research coordinator during and after site audits/inspections and show what you must do to ensure preparedness at all times.

Course "Audit/Inspection Preparedness for Clinical Research/Site Coordinators" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 1 RAC credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

Why Should You Attend:

The Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) plays a key role in the site’s success at audits/inspections, and must therefore know how to ensure the site is ready for an audit or inspection at all times.

In order to ensure audit/inspection preparedness, the CRC must be aware of the applicable regulatory and sponsor requirements, guidelines and SOPs, and ensure the conduct of the clinical research at the site complies with them. The site coordinator must know how to prepare for an audit or inspection and how to act and respond to questions during the audit or inspection. Following the audit or inspection, the site coordinator should be able to appropriately act upon the audit or inspection findings.

This 60-minute presentation will detail the responsibilities of the Investigator and the clinical research coordinator during and after Site Audits/Inspections. We will discuss how you can prepare your clinical site for audits/inspections and ensure readiness at all times. This webinar will provide valuable assistance to the Clinical Research Personnel in the Pharmaceutical, Biotech and Medical Device industries.

Topic Background:

The investigator is responsible to conduct the clinical research in accordance with the signed agreement, relevant, current protocol(s) and the applicable regulatory requirements and international guidelines. The investigator may delegate many tasks to the clinical research/site coordinator (CRC). The CRC oversees the daily clinical activities and may represent the investigator when interfacing with the sponsor, the subjects, the site staff and other involved parties. The role of the site coordinator is therefore crucial – a dedicated, knowledgeable CRC is the key for the appropriate conduct of the clinical research activities at the clinical site throughout the clinical trial.

The most acceptable way for the sponsors, CROs or regulatory authorities to confirm that the clinical investigators/sites conduct the study in compliance with the applicable regulatory and sponsor requirements, guidelines and SOPs, is to conduct an audit or an inspection of the clinical site. Audits and inspections follow similar processes with similar outcomes although they are handled differently. QA audits are scheduled way in advance whereas regulatory authority inspections might occur without or with a very short prior notice. The site coordinator will be required to prepare the site for the audit/inspection as well as attend any audit or inspection held at the site, to facilitate the auditor/inspector’s work and answer their questions.
Following the audit/inspection the findings will be communicated to the site and the site coordinator might be delegated the responsibility to answer the auditor or the regulatory authority, and conduct the corrective actions required.
