According to recent research, 70% of adverse events reported across clinical trials are preventable. Of these, more than 60% are caused by technical errors and 17% by inappropriate diagnosis. In CAGT trials, additional sources of quality risks include:
- Failure to follow an investigational plan (51%)
- Inadequate and inaccurate records (33%), with special reference to chains of custody and identity
In the study, it was clear that these failures are a result of a lack of training and experience of clinical delivery teams. Researchers recommended that CAGT operational education should not be restricted to a specific protocol but encompass the entire lifecycle delivered through a training platform that provides real-time safety updates, new risk profiles, and scientific advances, to empower research teams throughout product development and manufacturing.
CAGT manufacturing companies need to develop a dynamic training program that aligns with the on-the-job needs of their employees. It must be delivered in a way that enables self-learning, continuous on-the-job training, periodic performance assessments, and ongoing additions to the curriculum. But how can CAGT manufacturers customize training programs, understand the skills needed, identify gaps, deliver, and keep track of all the training? They need the right technology.
