Upcoming Webinar to Outline Refocusing on Risk Mitigation in Starting Clinical Trials

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 09, 2016) - On Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at 1pm EDT, Xtalks will host complimentary webinar featuring Rob Wynden, Vice President of Technology and Engineering at goBalto, Linda Sullivan, Co-Founder and President of Metrics Champion Consortium, and Andrea Sim, Vice President of Product at goBalto, as the presenters.

While risk management efforts in drug development have focused mostly on post-marketing drug safety, the clinical trials process has its own mix of potential risks waiting to derail a company's multimillion dollar development programs. Risk-based challenges are escalating as clinical trials become more global and complex, and as market pressures keep rising for new therapies at an ever-increasing pace. The webinar will focus on study startup and discuss best practices for the identification and mitigation of potential risks before they occur.

In this webinar the presenters will explore:

  • Considerations for assessing the best fit between sites and Sponsors/CROs (i.e., intelligent site profiling)
  • The importance of automating document workflows (i.e., alerts, ensuring regulatory/SOP compliance, role based assignments)
  • The need for standards and cycle-time metrics for benchmarking (i.e., performance monitoring)
  • The identification of red flags and the importance of real-time metrics to drive timely interventions
  • Project reporting with milestone tracking and re-projection
  • Improving collaboration with transparent communications
