WCG Avoca Quality Consortium Events
The WCG Avoca Quality Consortium (AQC) offers over 100 meetings and events yearly during which AQC Members can learn, engage with peers, discuss timely topics, and hear from industry thought leaders on solutions that have worked for their organizations.
WORKSTREAM COLLABORATIVE FORUMS (CoLABs)
Each AQC Workstream holds a series of Collaborative Forums (CoLABs). Formats include SME presentations, panel discussions, case studies, and open participant discussion and collaboration about hot topics in clinical research. CoLAB groups discuss both timely high-level industry trends and practical solutions to challenges AQC Members are solving every day.
LEADING CHANGE COLLABORATIVE FORUM
Each month, compelling topics designed to encourage provocative discussion are featured. Avoca Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) facilitate panels representing all appropriate stakeholder groups. The focus is on providing practical and actionable support and having immediate “peer-to-peer” benchmarking about how other organizations are managing the topic or question at hand, all while ensuring prioritization of patient safety, data integrity, and regulatory compliance.
