Introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) in a paediatric setting
A practical guide to ethical and scientific quality standards in clinical research
Monday 25th February
9:30am – 4:30pm (registration from 9am)
Lower Ground Seminar Room, UCL Institute of Child Health,
30 Guilford Street, London, WC1N 1EH
is designed to provide a basic introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and
the EU Directives, UK Regulations and Research Governance Framework
requirements covering clinical trials and other NIHR Portfolio studies
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.
The course is aimed at site staff involved in the conduct of studies once they have been accepted onto the NIHR Portfolio. Individuals involved in the design and management of portfolio studies are able to access this course but should be aware that it will not address their specific needs.
