The One-Hour Study Site Audit

In an effort to tease out the priorities of a clinical study site audit, I asked six of our most experienced GCP auditors the following question:

If you only had one hour to conduct a study site audit,
what would you look at?

[Obligatory warnings:  Do not try this at home. This is just a simulation. Caveat lectorem. Dinosaurs in the mirror are bigger than they appear. Et cetera.]

Of course it’s not possible to conduct any kind of meaningful audit in so short a time, but it’s an interesting thought exercise because it gets to the heart of study site risk.
