Clinical monitoring

ICH-GCP defines monitoring as “the act of overseeing the progress of a clinical trial”, that is, ensuring that the trial is conducted according to protocol, GCP, standard operating procedures (SOP) and regulatory requirements.

One of the key activities performed by a clinical research associate (clinical monitor) during a monitoring visit is the source data verification (SDV). The purpose of this procedure is to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the data and to verify that the patient’s rights are protected. The monitor checks data entered into the database (electronic data capture; EDC) or case report form (CRF) against the data in the source documents.

Clinical monitoring services can be provided by Synergy based on its standard operating procedures (SOP) as well as on the ground of client’s SOPs.
