The relationship between a clinical research monitor and site coordinator can play a major role in ensuring data integrity and compliance with applicable regulations. Positive relationships can foster timely data entry, rapid resolution of queries, and adherence to FDA regulations. On the other hand, strained relationships can delay data entry, prevent resolution of queries and lead to sites being less inclined to follow regulations. The coordinator-monitor relationship is critical to the research process as it serves as a link between sponsors, investigators, and regulatory authorities.
