Program Description: 

Managing compliance in clinical research is vital to successful clinical trials. Regulatory authorities expect that all stakeholders identify noncompliance, perform root cause analysis, put corrective and prevention action in place and then evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention. Without root cause analysis, interventions cannot be effectively identified and designed. This presentation will delineate the scientific concepts of root cause analysis and apply them specifically in the clinical trial setting. There will be a hands-on activity using tools provided.
