Detecting Fraud in IVD Clinical Trials

February 10, 2015 | Register Today to Reserve Your Space! 

Sponsored by Precision for Medicine 

Webinar Description:

This webinar will discuss the techniques that Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and those that FDA inspectors may employ to detect fraud. While fraud in clinical trials is rare, Precision will discuss the methodologies and techniques that sponsors need to be aware of to uncover fraud. Further, Precision will explore additional key sponsor responsibilities such as ensuring protocols are adhered to during enrollmentand certifying the data recorded is an accurate representation of that generated, all of which should be addressed through monitoring.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the difference between surreptitious behavior and sloppiness.
  • How an inspector may "pull threads" to uncover trends in data recording anomalies.
  • How to use monitoring as a means to ensure the integrity and veracity of clinical data.
  • Statistical approaches that have been used to evaluate clinical data to uncover fraud.
