In order to ensure compliance with GCP (Good Clinical Practice), clinical trial sites of investigators and sponsors are subject to rigorous inspection by regulatory agencies. In this course, United States and European aspects are examined in the context of inspection/audit of the investigator’s and sponsor’s site. The differences between inspections and audits are explained in so much as how they affect the stages leading up to actual procedures. It gives an overview of the meaning of inspections/audits and takes the mystery out of the entire process through a breakdown to its original components.

This course discusses in detail the phases preceding a GCP inspection/audit. An adequate preparation in order to fully cooperate with inspectors/auditors means having an understanding of their goals and agendas. You must comprehend why specific functions, processes, and documentation are needed and what the inspector/auditor is looking for. This will greatly enhance the procedures involved in internal QA. Auditing assures both the sponsor and the agency that proper standards are being met, and that the sites are adequate for the undertaking of studies in clinical research.

The entire program must be viewed by students in order to pass. An online, multiple-choice final assessment score of 80% or better is required. Course takers can attempt the final assessment any number of times, as needed, in order to achieve a passing grade.
