Introduction to Good Clinical Practice
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 course is designed to provide a basic introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and the requirements of the UK Policy for Health and Social Care, EU Directives and UK Regulations which cover NIHR Portfolio studies and clinical trials conducted within the NHS. The session has a practical focus with the key aim being that participants know what to do to practice excellent GCP when they return to their workplace to ensure that the rights, safety and well-being of patients are always protected.
Expected Learning Outcomes
Following the course, participants will have a demonstrable understanding of the background and practical implications of GCP. This understanding is intended to be a foundation for action about translating principles into practice and give participants the confidence to take a proactive role in improving processes and standards within their own work area.
