A sponsor conducting clinical trials has important responsibilities as per ICH GCP E6 R2, which are up for audit and inspection reviews, ensuring patient safety, rights and well-being, data quality and regulatory compliance.

It is therefore key that these requirements are not just known to management and the research staff, they also need to provide evidence of in-depth understanding, accurate application and compliance in a documented format per the level of risk of the trial and within their realm of involvement in the trial.

This course covers the different aspects of the operational management of a clinical trial, including the review of the applicable regulations and the overview of day-to-day responsibilities of each member of the clinical team (CRA and project manager) through theory and interactive discussions.

Slides, useful documentation, a training sign-in sheet and certificate are included.
