Training Program Description

As any clinical research professional knows, auditing and monitoring are an inevitable part of participating in clinical trials. When facing an FDA or sponsor audit, it’s important to know what types of inquiries you’ll face and how to respond to them. While your site may be compliant, ensuring that your staff can properly respond to questions and access documentation is crucial.

In this webinar, Stuart Cotter, Forte’s Director of Product Success and former Forte eReg Product Manager, and MaryAnn Kempker, Forte’s Computer System Validation Project Manager, provide insight into how your site can proactively plan for audits and monitoring visits.
