We all want our documents to be error-free. Errors are embarrassing. They can mar reputations, and have legal and regulatory consequences. Most importantly, they misinform regulators and healthcare professionals, and may adversely affect patient care. But we can’t fix an error unless we find it. Therefore, data accuracy reviews may be the most important step in preparation of a medical publication or regulatory document.

This presentation will help participants optimize their data accuracy reviews by addressing when during the writing process to conduct data reviews, how to prepare for them, and how to conduct a review that will cover all potential error types.

At the conclusion of this webinar, learners will be able to

  • Evaluate their specific processes and needs to determine the most productive timing for data reviews
  • Facilitate data review of their documents through superior data annotation
  • Use guidance and tips from this course to enhance the thoroughness and accuracy of their data reviews.
