Protocol Deviations: Finding the Yellow Brick Road (Part 1 of 2)

Yvonne P. McCracken
Vice President, Clinical Operations and Compliance
Rx Trials Inc, United States

This two-part workshop addresses the lack of consistent terminology and methodology for managing and reporting protocol deviations. A hands-on experience will focus on developing a protocol deviation handling plan and classification of protocol deviations.

Part 1 will provide an overview of the DIA GCP/QA community position paper “Life Cycle and Management of a Protocol Deviation.” This position paper represents the inputs of industry experts (including pharmaceutical companies, IRBs, regulatory agency, clinical sites, and others) and provides a common definition for protocol deviations and best practices for categorizing, managing, and reporting study deviations

Preregistration is strongly recommended, and attendees are expected to attend both Part 1 and Part 2.

Part 2 will take place on Monday at 11:00 AM (Session #137).

Workshop sessions will be interactive so attendees are asked to download all handouts to tablet or laptop and bring to both workshop sessions. To secure a seat for this specific workshop, please email annualmeetingprogram@diahome.org, Subject line: Protocol Deviations Workshop.

**Due to workshop format, seating will be limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Once all seats are occupied, DIA will be required to close the workshop, and no more participants will be admitted.
