  • NRS Introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP)

    This one day course is designed either for those who have not studied Good Clinical Practice (GCP) before or those who have studied it more than two years ago. It is presented as a practical introduction to the subject and consists of a mixture of short lectures interspersed with practical activities, culminating in a monitoring workshop. The monitoring workshop allows the more abstract concepts that have been discussed throughout the day to be brought to life.

    While the principles of GCP that are covered in the course are common to a wide range of different types of clinical research the course does focus on the drug trial specific legislation. However, it also promotes the ‘GCP-mindset’ needed to satisfy inspectors and auditors, and would therefore be useful for all clinical researchers.

    This ICH E6 GCP Investigator Site Training meets the Minimum Criteria for ICH GCP Investigator Site Personnel Training identified by TransCelerate BioPharma, Inc. as necessary to enable mutual recognition of GCP training among trial sponsors.
