Webinar: (2018-12) Postapproval Monitoring as a Strategy for Animal Care and Use Program Improvement

Since postapproval monitoring (PAM) validates that research is being carried out in the manner that was originally approved by the IACUC, many institutions employ PAM as a self-auditing mechanism to check on compliance. A well-run PAM program, however, can also lead to improved animal welfare, science, and collaboration among departments in the animal care and use program. During this webinar, speakers will provide operational strategies for conducting PAM within a framework where PAM benefits institutional culture and program performance as a whole. Topics of discussion will include:
  • History, function, purpose, and evolution of PAM
  • Different models for structuring a PAM program, and tailoring these models to your institution’s needs
  • Strategies and resources for conducting PAM
  • PAM as an opportunity to promote education, transparency, and communication between researchers and the institution, and suggestions for how PAM staff contribute to this effort
  • Potential solutions to common challenges encountered in PAM
(Presented on December 5, 2018)
