The Basics of Medical Review e-Book is specifically designed for medical monitors (MM). The purpose is to provide a comprehensive overview of the tasks and responsibilities at clinical trial sites. Most of the time, the medical monitors are medical doctors (MD). They work directly with pharmaceutical companies or contract research organizations (CROs). They contribute to designing and reviewing the protocols for proposed clinical trials. Furthermore, they build case reports or manage clinical research projects. Also, they provide specialized medical input for medically-related issues during clinical trials.

Generally, medical monitors play a critical role in the clinical trial review process. To explain, the process flow for medical review is that the Medical Monitor assigned to the task completes the medical review of the Serious Adverse Events (SAE) reports within 24 hours of receipt.

This 9-page e-Book (The Basics of Medical Review e-Book) provides a brief explanation of the role of Medical Monitoring and the importance of Medical Monitoring. Furthermore, it describes the minimum items to be included in the SAE Medical Review Form and a template to enable you to create your Medical Monitoring Forms.
