SAM’s Topic:     “Workforce Gaps Post-RBM: It’s Time to ‘Dig’ In!”

The FDA released a draft Question and Answer Guidance in March 2019 supporting and clarifying the finalized guidance on risk-based monitoring. One major area of focus is on having the right personnel in the right work environment. Sponsors/CROs need to train and support their personnel, but this is not always easy, and a lack of training and support is frequently a root cause of problematic study start-up and issues management.

Takeaways from SAM’s Topic:

  • Understand what skills are needed to support successful teams

  • Learn to identify common gaps

  • Discuss how to dig for solutions
