This unique hands-on course will provide attendees with an understanding of how to apply to Statistics to the ten ICH Quality guidelines. The course will deliver tools, templates and insight that will allow participants to immediately begin implementation within their organization/firm.

How well do you understand how you can utilize statistics to address the ICH guidelines? Most organizations have programs and procedures but fall short in the implementation of the tool and techniques used to apply the appropriate statistical tools.

This 2 day hands-on workshop explores the unique challenges facing all facets of a pharmaceutical and biotechnology company. Practical implementation solutions as well as best practice descriptions that will allow management to effectively assess manage and mitigate risk of poorly designed studies. Participants will learn the major aspects of the statistical methods and discover how organizations and external authorities expect organizations to meet these guidelines.
