Good Clinical Practice Refresher

Currently we are not delivering any face to face training, however we will continue to review the situation in line with the latest government guidelines.

In the meantime we are offering a range of online and virtual training, details of which can be found on the CRN East Midlands Workforce Development Website and NIHR Learn.

A practical guide to ethical and scientific quality standards in clinical research

This half-day course is for experienced research delivery staff who:

Have previously completed either taught or online GCP training

Have recent practical experience of working in a clinical research environment

Have a good understanding of the principles and quality standards of GCP and related frameworks.

The course is not suitable for:

New researchers who do not have experience of working in a clinical research environment

Research staff who are not familiar with GCP, either because training was a number of years ago or because initial training was of poor quality.


The purpose of this refresher course is to reinforce and consolidate previous learning, provide an opportunity for you to reflect on your practice and raise your awareness of recent and relevant developments in GCP and related areas of research governance. The course will also reinforce the importance of keeping up-to-date with developments and making sure that you and your team continue to evaluate their research practice and make improvements if required. You will be signposted to resources and quality tools that will support you.
