The updates of ICH E8 and E6 represent a shift in the conduct of clinical research from a one-size-fits-all to a risk-based approach. TransCelerate framework focuses on elements identified as essential for successful implementation for ICH E8 as the foundation for the revisions to E6. This session will demonstrate the change of perspective and ways of implementing the GCP renovation, focusing on Designing Quality into Clinical Studies, Culture, and Engagement.
Considering Common Audit Findings in Your RBQM Strategy and Monitoring Activities
RBQM and monitoring audit findings typically involve evaluation of the effectiveness of the RBQM strategy and the quality of the monitoring activities carried out during a clinical trial. Addressing these audit findings can help to improve the quality of the trial, and ensure the safety and well-being of trial participants. Explore some common areas of potential risk identified during audits, and recommendations for improving the RBQM strategy and monitoring plan.
Clinical trial data complexity has tripled in the past decade, leading to fragmented data, insights, and stakeholder collaboration. These complexities pose significant inefficiencies in the research and drug development process and are exacerbated as clinical operations teams become leaner and cost-constrained. In this presentation, you will gain insight into real-world case studies using Lokavant to radically improve clinical trial outcomes, as well as overall successes for leaner study teams.
RBQM for Decentralized and Hybrid Trials
Following recent release of FDA's new draft guidance, that provides recommendations for sponsors, investigators, and other stakeholders regarding the implementation of Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCT), we will discuss considerations for applying Risk-Based Quality Management to prioritize quality management activities with the aim to ensure proper oversight of decentralized and hybrid trials.

OPENING KEYNOTE: CLIN OPS AS A GROWTH DRIVER & EU TRANSPARENCY REGS & GLOBAL DCT ADOPTION THROUGH COLLABORATION
Clinical Ops as a Growth Driver
Clinical Operations is the hardest job you'll ever love. It drives the growth of a clinical development portfolio that results in new therapeutic options for the patients who need them. This awesome responsibility may look "easy" from the outside, but starting and managing a clinical trial is like launching a new business into a saturated market each and every time. Let's talk about how inspiring you are!
Returning Results to Patients: Not Just a Regulatory Requirement with a Grace Period
EU Regulation/2014/536 requires results from trials initiated after January 2022 to be shared publicly within a year of completion and yet some sponsors are not sharing results. Several EU countries have successfully turned up the heat on sponsors who haven't shared the findings of their clinical trials actively pushing negligent sponsors and investigators to publicly share the results of past trials, an enforcement practice that's picked up momentum. After attending this presentation, the audience will: recognize the importance of returning trial results, in plain language, to all trial participants; describe the ramifications of not submitting plain language results; and plan for a large-scale implementation plan for returning results.
Navigating Global DCT Adoption: Driving Change through Collaboration
Global clinical trial teams are increasingly interested in using decentralized trial (DCT) methods. DCT technology and services providers have created a large variety of solutions for trial teams to use. However, there is no curated ‘source of truth’ accessible for providers or trial teams to understand which solutions can be used in which countries. The DTRA Regulatory Conduct Map initiative team has been focused on addressing this gap as part of its initial priorities to support the adoption of DCTs globally. In this session, initiative team members will share their approach to solving this challenge and how to use the deliverable they’ve created. Panelists will also share case studies on the application of this tool, and how it’s helping drive understanding and adoption of DCTs globally.

CASE STUDIES IMPLEMENTING AND EVOLVING RBQM
Evolution or Revolution? MSD’s Journey in the Expansion of End-to-End RBQM Concepts: Where We Are, What We’ve Learned So Far, and Where We’re Heading
Implementing RBQM principles into an existing Clinical Trial ecosystem is disruptive. But is this an evolution or revolution of how clinical trials are managed? We will share our journey of implementation and evolution of RBQM model and what we’re learning when it comes to designing RBQM components (Risks, Indicators, QTLs, and Central Analytics). And last - what is ahead of us and what other opportunities we see in the future?
Capability Failure = Study Failure: How to Prevent Both
Clinical studies play a crucial role in advancing medical knowledge and improving patient care. However, failures attributed to competency gaps among clinical research staff have become a significant concern. Inadequate training and experience may lead to false positive and false negative study results, impacting both patient outcomes and research integrity. The session reflects on the implications of competency gaps in clinical research, emphasizing the need for comprehensive training programs to enhance staff skills, and ensure reliable study outcomes. Addressing these gaps is vital for maintaining the credibility and effectiveness of clinical trials.

Change Management: The People Component Can Make or Break Your RBQM Program
People, process, and technology all need to work together for an effective RBQM program. But the people component can be one of the most challenging - whether it is the culture change needed in moving to risk-based approaches or the specific knowledge and skills to implement and run RBQM processes across different study types and teams within an organization. What can be developed in-house? What should come in from outside your organization? How do you help your people think critically as described in ICH E8 R1? Our panel of RBQM practitioners will discuss the people component, the challenges, and the approaches they have used to overcome those challenges.

RISK-BASED APPROACHES, DATA STRATEGY, AND MONITORING
Intersection of Risk-Based Quality Management and Clinical Data Sciences of the Future
This presentation will explore how advanced technology solutions and AI/ML are being leveraged to manage and monitor the ever-expanding volume and complexity of data being captured.
Medical Review Focused on Critical Data: Is the Centralized Medical Review Team the Answer?
A centralized data review team ensures standardized, systematic medical data review focused on critical data and complex checks, complementing centralized monitoring signal detection. This model shifts clinical data review, including about 50% of EDC modules, to a centralized function, enabling efficient data flow from the first subject to close-out. The cross-functional review framework and automation tools, including listings, dashboards, and patient profiles, improve quality and performance. This agile framework with medical oversight protects the safety of study participants and ensures scientific data value.
