Event Schedule
Understand how to effectively communicate the expectations and timing of a completeness review. Who should do the review and what are the most important factors they must check?
  • Understand the importance of timing and readability
  • Use technology for maximum integration
  • Explore completeness review from a resourcing and staffing perspective
Sustaining an inspection-ready TMF requires a comprehensive and sound approach, accounting for variables, and evaluating what went wrong. Are you prepared to craft a meaningful response other than having a CAPA to address findings?
  • Build a robust function QC process
  • Link quality management to the TMF Plan, which is a less frequently addressed approach
  • Implement a quality management system in TMF plan documentation for effective change
Develop a working partnership to appreciate the CRO’s experience. While teaching the CRO to understand your end game goals, you need to understand their own requirements and motivations as well.
  • Refine collaborative procedures with CROs
  • Maintain a constant state of inspection readiness while enhancing the relationship with your CRO
  • Establish proper training and support for inspections
Investigator and sponsor TMFs must integrate to form the story of the study while protecting patient privacy. Hear about the common elements for both the investigator and the sponsor TMF.
  • Discuss successful methods for enforcing responsibilities and changes
  • Ensure standardization of the investigator TMF records with the sponsor and the reference model
  • Rethink the electronic investigator reference model
Your current portfolio and existent quality review processes need to be evaluated for fit for purpose. This process involves defining your needs, optimal schedule, contributors, and documentation steps.
