Master class ICH-GCP 2016: Risk-Based Monitoring & Decision Making

At the end End of 2016 ICH-GCP will be 20 years old. The biggest change is the introduction of Risk Based Decision Making as the basis for the design and output of clinical research. To manage risks properly, it is crucial to think carefully about how your decisions are based on risks. Here we go in this Master class to work with each other.

Master class Advanced Clinical Trial monitoring

This master class goes deeper into the course CRA. How do I make certain matters negotiable on site? How can I support the recruitment targets? How do I manage the trial timelines and deal with quality issues? How do I successfully implement risk-based monitoring in the execution of my trials, without losing contact with my site? Eric Klaver helps you from his years of experience as a CRA and consultant to overcome these challenges.

Master class Regulatory Affairs

The master class Regulatory Affairs introduces the CRA or clinical research professional in the role of RA. What are the starting points for file structure? What is the registration process? You will find out in this Master class.

Master class Clinical Trials in Medical Devices

What is the difference in the design and implementation of medical device & drug studies? From the start until the end of the study there are differences, not only is there other regulations (ISO14155, MEDDEV, etc.), but there are also differences in requirements for the design and export of a study with a medical device. . In the master class on Thursday, August 25, Lorraine Parker from Parker CSS takes you into the world of medical device research. Several questions will be discussed and answered: What different forms of clinical research are there? How can I determine whether clinical research is needed for the medical device in question? Do I have to submit my research to an Ethics Committee and IGZ? And which documentation do I have to send? How can I demonstrate that there is sufficient clinical data to meet the safety and performance requirements of the medical device? Learn in this Masterclass.

Master class Pharmacovigilance

The collection and reporting of adverse events (AE, SAE, SUSAR) is an important aspect of clinical trials. Why is it so important that you, as a researcher, document the causality on the SAE form? Who processes these forms? And which reports must be reported to the authorities? In the Pharmacovigilance Masterclass at the GCP Central Summerschool, Rita Lobatto goes deeper into this.

Getting things done!

In addition to knowledge about laws and regulations and your knowledge of the protocol, your “soft skills” are essential for your success in clinical research. In this Masterclass you will work with motivator Eric Klaver to work in a client-oriented way with the site, challenge your time management skills and work on your motivation and change skills: how do you motivate your team or your research site? Go out and make things happen!
