Risk-Based Monitoring Symposium

Marcus Thornton
Senior Director, CTMS
Medidata Solutions Worldwide, United Kingdom

Life science organizations are actively implementing and executing risk-based monitoring programs, but what will this mean for current onsite monitoring practices and how will this shape the role of a clinical research associate (CRA)? This symposium will examine practical approaches to building a site management and monitoring team that supports a risk-based program and discuss how today's functional monitoring role might evolve.

Learning Objective(s):
Assess how onsite and remote monitoring and centralized site quality management functions are influenced by technology, analytics, and benchmarks; Demonstrate a model for collaboration between data managers and CRAs that optimizes site performance and delivers higher quality site captured data at a lower cost; Discuss how to evolve from the traditional CRA role into a risk-based monitoring world where there is interplay between remote, central, and onsite monitoring activities.

Presentation(s) & Speaker(s):
