Take the Risk out of Risk Based Monitoring – Learn What Industry Leaders Are Doing to Implement Inspection-Ready RBM





Industry leaders have embraced Risk Based Monitoring (RBM) as a method for:

Improving clinical trial efficiency

Streamlining resource utilization, and 

Delivering clinical trial cost savings. 

However, implementing RBM is not without risk, including regulatory inspection risk.  With the release of the EMA Reflection Paper in 2011 and the FDA Guidance in 2013 the use of RBM is increasing globally and regulatory agencies are now assessing the RBM practices implemented by sponsors. Are you ready?

This webinar will use the lessons learned from the early adopters of RBM, as well as, current industry best practices to inform those currently using RBM or those considering implementing RBM. Practical tools and actionable steps will help guide the implementation of a successful and inspection ready RBM program.


Learning Objectives


Understand RBM in the wider Clinical Quality context

Understand the key concepts and tools used for RBM

Identify common RBM failures and how to avoid them

Identify success factors and best practices used by industry leaders

List 5 steps to ensure RBM practices are inspection ready


Who should attend


Clinical research professionals with a basic knowledge of ICH-GCP principles. Some knowledge of RBM is preferred but not required.
