Do you or will you sit on Independent Data Monitoring Committees (IDMC) or have a trial that needs to be overseen by an IDMC? If so, this popular one-day course is for you, whether you are a clinician, statistician, or work in trial operations.

The multidisciplinary Faculty will lead participants through many of the challenges associated with reviewing accumulating data from clinical trials, and the practical and statistical issues that you need to know when setting up and running an IDMC.

Using lectures, group discussions, and real-life case studies the course will cover:
• roles and responsibilities of an IDMC
• membership and the need for independence
• best practice and decision-making
• recommendations, decisions, and relationships to other committees


The experienced panel is co-chaired by Max Parmar and Matt Sydes, with Laura Farrelly, and joined by leading trial clinicians drawn from a pool that includes Jeremy Chataway, Janet Darbyshire, Rick Kaplan, and Sheena McCormack.

Places on this course are limited, and priority will be given to applicants actively involved with Data Monitoring Committees. If demand exceeds the number of places, places will be awarded to those who the course presenters believe will benefit most from the course.
