Good Clinical Practice

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Courses 2016-7

GCP is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for the design, conduct, recording and reporting of clinical trials that involve the participation of human subjects. Anyone managing or conducting research in the NHS should be aware of Good Clinical Practice and evidence of GCP training is mandatory for gaining Host Site Approval for a Clinical Trial of an Investigational Medicinal Product (CTIMP). At St George’s, anyone working on a CTIMP must provide evidence of GCP training from within the previous 2 years.

St Georges In House GCP Course – Full Day

The course provides an intensive overview of the fundamentals of Good Clinical Practice, for new or experienced staff. The training is based on the International Conference on Harmonisation GCP guidelines but also introduces The Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) Regulations and Amendment Regulations 2006, which have transposed the EU Clinical Trials Directive and GCP Directive into UK law. The course gives an overview of aspects applicable to all research. In addition, this course is designed to highlight the additional  regulatory requirements applicable to CTIMPs so it is particularly relevant to those involved with this sub-set of trials.

The course will be run every other month. Current available dates are:

10 November 2016 10am to 4pm

22 March 2017 10am to 4pm
