Quality by Design REMOTE LEARNING

Course Information

The modernisation of ICH E8 emphasises a Quality by Design (QbD) approach to trial design. The Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative has built and is currently expanding a suite of resources for learning about, teaching others, and applying QbD principles in clinical trials.  These include evidence-based recommendations for QbD, a principles document, case studies, and other resources that will give sponsors and other stakeholders the tools and confidence they need to effectively implement QbD at their organisation.
In this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn about QbD principles and review available QbD resources,
  • Hear and discuss case studies highlighting diverse models of implementation and lessons learned
  • Apply the principles and resources to a hypothetical trial, and
  • Join a discussion on implementation models and best practices that may support their organisations in implementing QbD.

Participants will hear answers to questions such as:

  • Is the trial I've designed answering the question I intended?
  • How can I better streamline my trial?

Recent Feedback

"The presenters were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and kept the pace from start to finish.  I was able to build on existing knowledge and also gained new ideas.  I enjoyed the workshop as I don't get opportunity to meet and chat with such a wide range of QA people in my day-to-day work.  The slides and course handouts were ideal and I will be referring to them again in future."
"I now have a very good understanding of QbD. Having a complex protocol as an example was a good learning experience."
