Most clinical research throughout the world is conducted honestly and honorably, but occasionally researchers are discovered to have fabricated data or to have falsified results, which leads to the exploitation of sponsors and, much worse, the exploitation of patients. Using the extensive experience of the trainer, the prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of research fraud and misconduct will be covered. EFGCP is pleased to propose ‘à la carte’ training modules -such as this one - to organisations and companies who seek to offer their members or employees high-quality interactive courses that will bring real added value to their knowledge and professional achievements. This module can be tailored to suit the audience and of variable length.
