QbD-RBQM-Quality Improvement Community of Practice

MCC’s QbD – RBQM – Quality Improvement Community of Practice Group is a multi-stakeholder, virtual community of practitioners who meet on a regular basis to share experiences, discuss challenges and develop solutions.

Group Description

Members of the MCC QbD-RBQM-Quality Improvement Community of Practice are focused on establishing and implementing performance metrics and procedures in their organizations that produce high quality protocols, better identify and reduce risks before the start of a study, and better oversee risks during the study. This member-only collaborative group is supported by the broader MCC community of MCC Ambassadors, Solution Providers and MCC staff. Team members help one another blaze a trail by establishing a new pathway to clinical study quality.
