MCC Central Monitoring WG Meeting January 19 – Complete Questionnaire to Register (Members Only)

Friday, December 9, 2016

Risk-Based Monitoring (RBM) is now a familiar term and common practice within many clinical research organizations.  Central Monitoring is considered a key component of effective RBM, but organizations have been designing and implementing Central Monitoring in unique ways.  
MCC would like to gather and share information about the current state of Central Monitoring.  Some of the information we are gathering seeks to answer questions such as:

  • How many organizations are using or considering using a Central Monitoring team?
  • What roles make up your Central Monitoring team?
  • What systems do your Central Monitoring team use?

MCC is using an online questionnaire to capture this information. At the end of the questionnaire you will have the option to register for the MCC Central Monitoring working group meeting scheduled for Thursday 19 January where the results of the survey will be shared. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please provide your contact information at the end of the survey in order to receive survey results.
There are two questionnaires customized for different types of organizations.

Please click Complete CM Questionnaire for Sponsor / CRO if you most closely identify with a sponsor or CRO organization. 
Please click Complete CM Questionnaire for Vendors / Consultants if you most closely identify with an organization that provides products, technology and/or services to Sponsors or CROs. 
Both questionnaires consist of 10 questions that will take approximately 3 minutes to complete. Your individual survey responses will be kept confidential.
Please forward the link to this survey to any colleagues who are directly involved with Central Monitoring within your organization.  This survey is limited to MCC members only.
The survey will close on Wednesday 11 January 2017.   

Please contact Linda Sullivan for additional information.
