Where you choose to focus your valuable QA resource, will ultimately determine what you discover at audit. The application of a robust risk-based approach to auditing is required to maximise the value of your QA resource, by focusing on the areas that matter and will add the most benefit to your company. In the new ICH GCP E6 R2 world, a risk-based approach to clinical trials, including audits is essential. Companies manage risk at many different levels. The QA group will need to be able to evaluate their company’s approach to risk, including the way risks are evaluated and visualised to determine if the approach is fit for purpose.
The application of risk-based approach to clinical audits can be challenging as it requires;
- An understanding of the companies’ approach to risk
- An ability to identify and assess the potential compliance risks of the company business strategy
- An ability to challenge the risk-based approach in the conduct of clinical trials
Clinical auditors and quality professionals will need to have the skills and confidence to embrace these challenges and understand how to apply a risk-based approach to clinical audits and how this approach can be leveraged in the delivery of high quality audits.
This course provides you with the grounding that will allow you to become familiar with the impact a risk-managed audit program can have on the successful execution of clinical trials and how it can be applied to the key aspects of planning, preparing,
developing and conducting clinical audits.
