Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Regulations and guidance can be overwhelming and seem conflicting when it comes to handling serious adverse events. It is important to know when and what needs to be submitted, reviewed, and approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) and what can be handled by the investigator as non-reporting of events that are considered reportable can lead to issues related to non-compliance.

Serious adverse events along with their cousins, adverse events, anticipated events, unanticipated events and unanticipated problems are often confused and misunderstood. This session will make a distinction between nomenclatures and discuss the reporting requirements to the FDA and Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP).
