To control the trial development and its compliance with the stablished requirements, is fundamental to ensure that the quality standards are met. By monitoring your clinical trials, you will ensure that the quality standards are met and will have a better control of your process. In this post, we will introduce our readers to the clinical trials monitoring and its importance within this industry.
From childhood, we hear it is important to do what we had said we would and always be sure we are on the right track. Many of you probably remember a relative, friend or acquaintance who was involved in a project (and not necessarily professional, it could be going to the gym, leading a healthier diet, or learning a new language) and, for not having defined well what they wanted to achieve and how the progress would be measured and controlled, the whole plan failed.
It may seem to be a situation very little related with what it is applied in experimental studies but, in fact, it has a lot to do with it and we surely have managed to attract your attention.
What did they do wrong? The problem was not the lack of initial commitment, but not monitoring whether they were sticking to the plan. This is even more important when you make a major chance, such as adding a new ingredient to their diet, downloading an app to practice the language with other speakers, or changing the time they would work out). Going blind only causes us to lose motivation and control of what we are doing, and this is how what starts out as a great project can go completely overboard.
