Course Description

Increase the quality and efficiency of your clinical trials through risk-based monitoring.

As an investigator, do you know what risk-based monitoring (RBM) means to you and your trial staff? Because you are ultimately responsible for all data collected and reported from your site, it is critical that you understand what RBM is and how it affects you. This interactive eLearning course answers the fundamental questions: What is RBM and how is it different from the standard monitoring approach? It then builds on that content to examine the impact on investigators specifically, including new approaches to data management, study budget and contract considerations.

Learning Objectives

  • Define Risk-Based Monitoring (RBM)
  • Describe significant differences in utilizing an RBM approach as compared to 100% on-site monitoring and 100% centralized monitoring
  • Follow risk-management strategies as part of overall quality management procedures when setting up or evaluating a protocol and related activities
  • Apply RBM without jeopardizing patient safety, quality of data and regulatory compliance
