Implementation and Utilization of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) at the Clinical Research Site
This webinar will assist clinical research personnel in developing/acquiring SOPs for their site. You will learn how to create a compliant but user–friendly set of SOPs that can pass regulatory audits and also be a useful tool for the site staff.
Why Should You Attend:
ICH GCP guidelines require that all research sites have “Detailed, written instructions to achieve uniformity of the performance of a specific function.” Regulatory agencies are now requiring that every site have a set of SOPs for the elements of clinical research to assure compliance with ICH GCP and ask to review the site’s SOPs during audits.
This course will cover the minimum requirements necessary for SOPs to pass a regulatory audit. It will also offer tips on streamlining the process of development and implementation of SOPs at the site level.
You will learn why SOPs are required at the site level, how to develop SOPs and how to implement them.

Christine is the author of SOPs for Clinical Research Sites© which is a comprehensive set of Standard Operating Procedures available for purchase. These SOPs are unique in that they are designed to be customized by the site and to be utilized as a training tool for site staff.
Ms Hegi has authored and instructed CRA training courses for some of the major pharmaceutical companies as well as small organizations. She has taught multiple courses in SOP development and utilization. Multiple academic organizations have contracted her services for the presentation of ICH GCP and other research related courses. She has presented multiple times at professional conferences. Her previous experience as an Emergency Nurse, Study Coordinator, CRA and Director of Clinical Affairs bring both site and industry perspectives to her teaching.
Most clinical research sites, from the small office set-up to large academic institutions, are overwhelmed at the thought of developing a quality set of SOPs for research at their facility. Frequently there is not staff at the site that has the knowledge or experience to write SOPs. It is estimated that it takes approximately 1,000 hours to write a comprehensive set of SOPs and this can be even longer if the documents must be completed by the committee process.
