Risk-based monitoring (RBM) is being used more often by sponsors and CROs and, undoubtedly, there is an impact on all research professionals.

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 the clinical research site and CRAs in topics related to new approaches to data management, study budget, and contract considerations.
