This course offers an intensive one-day interactive programme that can be tailored to meet the needs of different groups involved in clinical research. The core of the course is devoted to the practical details that must be in place if a clinical trial is to be conducted to GCP standards, but the history and fundamental principles of GCP are also covered. Other topics tackled include setting up a clinical trial at the investigative site, GCP compliance in document management, involving patients in clinical trials, critical elements of conducting clinical trials, what happens when things go wrong, and EudraVigilance - safety reporting of investigational medicinal products. This GCP Training Course is provided by members of the EFGCP who are recognised experts in the relevant specific fields. Also available in German.
