ECRIN Workshop on Cloud Computing

A workshop was held in Brussels on 30th October 2014 to examine the potential benefits and risks associated with the use of 'cloud computing' for clinical trial data. It examined a variety of issues, including the nature of cloud computing and cloud service providers, security issues associated with 'the cloud' and frameworks available to assess compliance of cloud services with GCP and regulatory requirements. Links are provided here to the workshop's programme and participants.

The general feeling of the meeting was that although cloud based services could be tempting and promised flexibility and low costs, there were considerable risks associated with using such services now, especially if they were shared with other users. Specialist 'Community Clouds', as developed by the EGI project, were therefore of considerable interest. It is hoped to publish the main points raised during the meeting as a commentary in the e-journal Trials in the near future. Copies of presentations are provided for download below.

Database on outcome measures for medical device trials online now!

Selecting appropriate outcome measures to assess the efficacy and safety of a medical device in a given disease plays a crucial role and can be challenging. A database that allows you to search information on relevant outcomes related to specific medical devices is established and is now available to support you in planning, conducting clinical trials and health technology assessments (HTA) on medical devices.

For more information and link to the data base, please look at the section tools.

EFGCP Workshop on Quality Risk Management in Clinical Trials: Demonstrating How to Implement Risk-Based Monitoring

16 & 17 June 2014
University College London, United Kingdom

The workshop is being developed in close collaboration with thought-leaders from Health Authorities, industry, CROs, academia and patients representatives. Up to now discussions on risk management have been mainly theoretical and the practicalities of 'how to' has not been defined. Yet nobody is sure how much is actually 'enough' and how much is too little. Research Organisations are starting to create their approaches to risk assessment and risk-based monitoring and yet there are still questions which need to be addressed, especially on how to define, justify and "validate" of what is critical to patients' safety, integrity & rights, and data integrity. At the end of the workshop a discussion round with regulators is planned to give participants guidance whether the approaches developed during the workshop would be acceptable in their view.
