Read Frequently Asked Questions

This clinical research QA training will provide practical advice for clinical research sites on when and how to get started with building their quality assurance program. A table of contents of the most critical SOPs will be provided.

Does your research site have a quality assurance program or SOPs that document how critical pieces of the research process are managed? Research site personnel must conduct research in compliance with Good Clinical Practices (GCP). To support high quality research, the research site should consider the development of a quality assurance program, SOPs, forms, and documented procedures and work instructions for their site.

This one-hour webinar training will provide practical guidance on a GCP quality system for clinical research sites. This session will review the GCP regulations, ICH guidelines, key roles and responsibilities, and provide an outline to get started on a quality system build. Tips on the development and roll-out of the quality assurance program across the site will also be discussed.

Why Should You Attend:

  • Does your site lack any documented quality assurance processes? Or, do you have a quality system and SOPs that are hard to use and not reflective of your processes?
  • Have you received some recent 483's after an FDA inspection?
  • Are you a new CRC, research director, or PI that is building the research practice and would like to learn more about the role of a quality assurance system for your site?
  • Are you looking for some additional training for your staff?
  • Are you a sponsor or CRO who has responsibility for oversight and training of site personnel?
  • Do you conduct site assessment and audits? Do you conduct study monitoring?

If yes, you should consider attending this one-hour webinar.

Learning Objective:

At the end of this webinar, participants will better understand the GCP regulations, the need for a quality assurance program for a research site, and how they can get started building the system that day.
