So You Think You Know GCP...

There are many component parts to GCP including FDA regulations, FDA guidance documents, state laws and international standards. There is so much information to digest on GCP that it is easy to get confused on what GCP actually requires and what is simply recommended. This presentation will use a quiz show format to challenge audience members with GCP questions on a variety of topics including informed consent, monitoring, source documentation, subject recruitment, and IRBs. Even experienced clinical research professionals might be surprised by what they think they know and what is actually true. 225

What to Do When the FDA Just Shows Up

We have all heard that the FDA can show up at our site at any time. Most of the FDA visits we hear about start with a phone call or some notification, which in turn allows the site some time to “prepare”. What do you do when the FDA just shows up? 231
