Presented by Whitsell Innovations, Inc.
The quality control (QC) process is a critical step in finalizing regulatory documents. Medical writers may have personal preferences on how to send documents for QC, and companies often have checklists to ensure the QC process is complete. However, what about the finer details that impact timelines and sanity for the QC specialist? How should a medical writer annotate a document for QC? How do you accurately estimate time to complete QC? What are the downstream effects of shifting timelines? In this webinar, a medical writer and QC expert will discuss what it takes to make QC run smoothly and how to tackle common dilemmas.
At the conclusion of this webinar, learners will be able to
- Describe the relationship between the medical writer and QC specialist.
- Optimize personal workflow for efficient QC.
- Explain ways to manage common QC problems.
