In addition to explaining the definition and rationale for RBM, this presentation will demonstrate how it will be implemented by clinical trial Sponsors and what the downstream effects will be to sites. Lastly, the presentation will provide insight into what sites need to do to best prepare for this new monitoring paradigm.
