Product Description

Get Current Knowledge for PIs and Other Investigators on FDA Regulations That Govern Clinical Research Activities

Do you know what constitutes an “Adverse Event” – from the FDA point of view?  Bet you will be surprised. Do you know that in the Form FDA 1572, the PI “Agrees” (by signature) to follow 7 of the 9 listed sentences? Do you know what it is that the PI “agrees” on the 1572 to have “read and understand”? You need to know all these rules and more to avoid being embarrassed during an FDA audit.

When Prinicipal Investigators sign the FDA form 1572 or the "Statement of the Investigator (for IDE studies), they commit themselves to follow all the appropriate regulations by signing a document that is legally binding. Therefore, the subject safety as well as data integrity becomes the responsibility of the PI. It has become necessary for physician and dentist investigators to be knowledgeable and familiar regarding their responsibilities with the investigative wing of the FDA /OHRP increasing the auditing/surveillance.

In this webinar, our expert speaker, Charles H. Pierce, MD, PhD, FCP, CPI, will acquaint the PI and other investigators of the current FDA regulations that govern clinical research activities. You will understand why it’s Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and common sense to follow the regulations.
