Course Detail

GCP008A - Good Clinical Practice for non-CTIMP research

This course is a shorter version of the Good Clinical Practice Full Course suitable for researchers conducting health research in an NHS or social care setting which is not regulated by the MHRA – including (but not limited to ) observational studies, qualitative studies and interventional studies which do not involve drugs or devices.

Researchers who are or will be working on MHRA regulated trials - Clinical Trials of Investigational Medicinal Products (CTIMPs) or a Clinical Investigations of Medical Devices - must book on to the Good Clinical Practice Full Course instead, as this course will not cover the requirements of these studies.

Once you have completed this course, you will be required to attend a GCP Refresher course every two years.

This course will cover Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and the UK Policy Framework for Health and Social Care Research. The course will explain why the guidelines were introduced, provide a summary of their content and describe how they should be applied to studies sponsored by Queen Mary or Barts Health. Topics covered include essential documentation, local procedures, the informed consent process, as well as the current regulations on Data Protection.

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.
