Overview: This Webinar deals with what happens, and under what circumstances, when the protocol is not followed (PNF) and why this is of particular significance.

Covered, will be how a protocol deviation with the least significant effect where there is no substantive effect on the risks to research participants, no substantial effect of the value or integrity of the data, and did not result from willful or knowing misconduct on the part of the investigator is handled.

It will be important to see what the FDA regulations and the ICH GCP recommendations are in this regard. Most importantly, when do a protocol deviation / change lead to a protocol amendment. There are differences in actions, reporting and consequences of deviations and violations and these will be discussed. The key is that the PI and all clinical staff know and follow the research plan (Protocol) exactly as it is written. To do this is ethical research. TO not follow the protocol is folly.

Why Should You Attend: Protocol Deviations and Violations are one of the most common problems identified by FDA Investigators and is a main reason for the rejection of clinical data from a particular site or even a study. Forewarned is forearmed.
