What knowledge do you have of investigator sites as a supplies person?

Do you understand the difficulties faced at investigator sites?

This session will present delegates with problems encountered by sites and discovered during inspections, and will provide an in-depth analysis of the root cause.

This session will provide delegates with better understanding of what happens to the IMP at investigator sites and will include an overview of issues for investigators, site staff and patients. It will give delegates concrete examples of how the supplies staff can ensure the site staff have the information they need. It will explore the different issues associated with investigator sites and their impact on patients, site and sponsor staffs.
