What is a Serious Adverse Events and how do I handle these Webinar By MentorHealth
5/15/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing

Overview: When conducting clinical trials it is important to understand and be able to identify serious adverse events (SAE). These are events that are serious, likely related to the study drug, device, treatment or procedure, and increase risks to participants or others.

Serious adverse events are defined by the FDA as "Any adverse experience that places the patient, in the view of the initial reporter, at immediate risk of death from the adverse experience as it occurred, i.e., it does not include an adverse drug experience that, had it occurred in a more severe form, might have caused death." Although this definition seems clear, there are words within the definition itself that have to be understood in order to ensure compliance. Who is the initial reporter? What is an adverse experience? Is an adverse experience different or the same as an adverse drug experience? How do you know if a more severe form as occurred? Is death the SAE or is the cause of death the SAE?

This webinar will help sort out all these issues and get you to a better understanding of what needs to be reported to who.

Why should you attend: Regulations and guidance can be overwhelming and seem conflicting when it comes to handling serious adverse events, it is important to know when and what needs to be submitted, reviewed, and approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) and what can be handled by the investigator as non-reporting of events that are considered reportable can lead to issues related to non-compliance.

Areas Covered in the Session:

ICH guidelines and Good Clinical Practice (GCP)

Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) guidance

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance


Potential effects on consent and the protocol

Comparing AgileScrum and CMMI How They Can Work Together
5/28/2014 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Online Event(World wide) Fremont, California United States
Event Listing

Scrum is a pre-defined development lifecycle based on Agile principles. Agile methodologies promote a project-management process that encourages frequent inspection and adaptation, and a leadership philosophy using teamwork, self-organization and accountability. CMMI is a collection of practices that organizations (software, hardware and IT) can adopt to improve their performance. The CMMI comes with two main views (representations), Staged and Continuous. Staged shows all of the Process Areas (groups of related practices) in the form of a road map, allowing organizations to focus on basic improvements before attempting advanced topics. The Continuous representation has the same content but allows for any topic (Process Area) to be selected à la carte.

We have successfully built and integrated service based applications. Now we want to deploy them in the cloud and take advantage of commercial, cloud-based applications, but the integration challenges become much more complicated than between on-premise applications. Recent surveys show, for example, that companies abandon SaaS solutions because of problems integrating SaaS with on-premise applications.
