Standard Operating Procedures represent an ideal procedural roadmap for clinical research, helping to promote quality research, Good Clinical Practices and compliance with federal regulations. Well-written SOPs can lead to better compliance and streamline administration of clinical trials. However, there are many and varied methods for designing and implementing SOPs, leaving clinical professionals searching for ways to ensure their effectiveness and prove their ultimate value to the clinical process.
SOPs, if created correctly, define the roles, responsibilities and functions of clinical staff and help to achieve high quality, global, consistent and cost-effective drug development without the duplication of efforts. To demonstrate how SOPs can make the greatest impact on the conduct of your clinical trials, the Institute for International Research is proud to present our 3rd Annual SOPs for Clinical Research industry gathering. For the last two years, we have brought you information on the role of SOPs, particularly in protecting a site’s reputation. Now, join our 3rd annual speaking faculty, whose mission is to provide the tools and strategies needed for:

Creating SOPs
Managing the role of SOPs
Developing SOP training programs
Implementing electronic management of SOPs
Instituting a system for deploying international SOPs

…and more
The goal is to learn from the practical experience and expertise of our distinguished faculty, customize the takeaway information for your own clinical research programs, and ultimately, develop and strategically utilize your own SOPs. Well-designed SOP can make a difference in the outcomes of clinical trials and help achieve the goals of quality, cost and time savings.
The 3rd Annual SOPs for Clinical Research builds upon the last two years by presenting workshops on the basics and combining more advanced topics to focus on solutions to your companies’ specific SOP development and implementation challenges. Designed for both pharmaceutical and biotech professionals conducting clinical research, we are delighted to offer practical industry examples including:

ASTRAZENECA develops an SOP training procedure using web conferencing
PFIZER approaches optimizing procedures, implementing recommendations, and maintaining SOPs during times of organizational change
BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB illustrates practical solutions for monitoring and managing SOPs
NATUS MEDICAL implements a strategy to develop procedural and analytical SOPs to increase chances of study success
