Further information about the SOP-H quality system


What is the SOP-H system?

The SOP-H system is a user friendly quality system for investigators in a hospital who independently of any pharmaceutical sponsor, wish to initiate and conduct clinical trials. The SOP-H system ensures the investigator complies with all relevant applicable rules and regulations.

How was the SOP-H system formulated?

The SOP-H system consists of a number of standard operating procedures. The entire clinical research process is described in 11 procedures, i.e. the general SOPs: the Quality System, training and qualification, audit, fraud and misconduct. The primary research process is described in three phase SOPs: the preparation phase, the execution phase and the analysis and completion phase. These SOPs are hyperlinked to four other SOPs. These SOPs include the following processes: the study protocol and protocol amendments, monitoring, data management and statistical analysis.

What is the format used to design the SOP-H quality system?

The SOPs can be viewed in HTML format and can be printed in pdf format. The SOPs link to instructions which can be viewed in HTML. These instructions can also be printed in pdf format. A study cannot be conducted in compliance with the ICH GCP guideline without the use of checklists, forms and templates. The SOP-H system provides quick and easy links from all SOPs to instructions, checklists, forms and templates. The checklists, forms and templates are available in word format so that these can be edited and customised for a particular study..

How is the SOP-H system maintained?

Profess ensures that the SOP-H system is compliant with all applicable regulatory requirements. Profess will study all relevant applicable requirements and transcribe these into user friendly, bite sized, tasks and obligations, with a proper “Plain Common Sense” qualification. User comments will also be incorporated to continuously improve the system.
