2017 DMC Optimization Summit – 2017 DMC Optimization Summit

Data Monitoring Committees play the critical role of ensuring the safety of study participants while maintaining a trial’s scientific integrity. With the growing use of DMCs, some relevant issues are not currently being addressed, resulting in uncertainties concerning optimal approaches for communication between the DMC members, sponsors, and other stakeholders.

The DMC Optimization Summit, scheduled for October 19–20 in Philadelphia, has an outstanding list of expert presenters who will discuss and share their challenges with the complex issues we must face in the coming years. Developing effective DMCs, communication among DMC members, writing charters, and DMC training are all among the topics that will be reviewed. This conference presents an opportunity to discuss the present status and future direction of Data Monitoring Committees.
