Manageable Risk: Focusing on what Matters in Clinical Trials Seminar

The identification and management of risk in Clinical Trials is an area of ever increasing focus.  The implementation of ICH GCP (R2) including a whole new section dedicated to quality and risk management, along with the new Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 advocating a risk managed approach, leaves many of us wondering “What does this really means for us?”.  “What should we be focusing on?”.

This interactive seminar will share real life experiences and examples of what works.  One size does not fit all and this is your opportunity to access ideas and approaches to Clinical Trial risk management.   Participants will get practical solutions and tools to enable support of their organisations in identifying, managing, mitigating and ultimately reducing the risks associated with clinical trials.
