Course Detail

GCP003 - Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Refresher

UPDATED May 2020 - Due to the pandemic we have been forced to put interim measures in place to deliver the Good Clinical Practice course with some pre-reading required and shorter more concise sessions on the local requirements, updates and hot topics.

The Refresher will have a new format with focus on updating and increasing knowledge on the local and wider picture guidelines.

This course is suitable for researchers who have previously attended GCP training but need to refresh and update their knowledge. The course is suitable for all clinical research, including Clinical Trials of Investigational Medicinal Products (CTIMPs). If you have not attended GCP training before, please book on to the Good Clinical Practice Full Course or Good Clinical Practice for non-CTIMP Research.
It is mandatory that researchers working on CTIMPS at Queen Mary University of London or Barts Health NHS Trust attend this course every two years.

This two and a half hour course aims to refresh attendees’ knowledge of Good Clinical Practice, the UK regulations and sponsor requirements. The course will review the principles of Good Clinical Practice, the UK Policy Framework for Health and Social Care Research and the Clinical Trial Regulations and describe how they should be applied to Barts Health /Queen Mary sponsored clinical research.

This course is available free of charge for at staff who work for Queen Mary and Barts Health. External attendees should contact cpd@qmul.ac.uk prior to registering to discuss costs.


By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Refresh clinical trial research staff's knowledge of Clinical Trial Regulations and Amendments
  • Refresh clinical trial research staff's knowledge of the requirements to comply with the protocol, agreements and approvals
  • Refresh clinical trial research staff's knowledge of Informed Consent
