The risk-based monitoring (RBM) plan is a strategic approach, focusing on the monitor’s review of protocol-specific data elements. The Food and Drug Administration’s final guidance on RBM provides sponsors with guidance on a holistic systems approach to analyzing and continuously improving a protocol or entire clinical program. The guidance presents a high-level roadmap to building and tailoring monitoring programs using a cadre of methods to review and analyze data.
