The ‘UKCRC Registered CTU Network – Monitoring of clinical trials: a handbook’, which has been developed by the UK CRC Monitoring Task and Finish Group with the assistance of a number of additional monitoring representatives from across the Network, has now been launched.
This monitoring handbook is aimed at UK academic trialists undertaking monitoring activities such as on-site, remote and central monitoring. It is intended to be used as a resource to support initial training of those performing monitoring activities and as a point of reference thereafter. The handbook provides general information about monitoring, which should be supported by training on CTU/Sponsor specific SOPs, guidance documents and templates. This handbook provides information on the theory of monitoring, tips on conduct and real life examples and exercises that may help to explain and support possible monitoring approaches and their application.
