COVID-19 Impact Risk Assessment for Clinical Trials: Example Questions and Plans to Cover the Highest Risks (Recorded session)


The COVID-19 pandemic obliges sponsors and clinical researchers in general to conduct an impact risk assessment for their trials. If you are not sure where to start, or want confirmation of the accuracy and completeness of what you did thus far, then join this TRIUM live online workshop. We will share what questions to pose to cover the highest risks and will show an example risk assessment log, aligned with the TransCelerate structure, that can be used as a template or starting point.
