Interactive Training in Applied GCP for Investigators, Researchers & Clinical Staff

28 February & 2, 7, 9 March 2022

The way clinical trials – industrial and academic – are conducted in the European Union has undergone a major change with the application of the Clinical Trials Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 536/2014) from 31 January 2022.

Strict adherence to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) principles ensures patient protection and reliable data. It is the basis for acceptance of publications and for patients’ access to new treatments. This standard has implications for all stakeholders and processes in clinical trials. However, despite overall commitment and best intentions to apply to these requirements, monitoring, audits and inspections regularly highlight findings of different levels of severity.

In this interactive 4 lunchtime lectures current experience and requirements of GCP-conform set-up and performance of clinical trials will be presented, their practical implications and examples discussed and pragmatic solutions for your daily practice elaborated.

 A GCP certificate will be available upon participation of sessions 1, 3 & 4 (2 is optional) and passing the final test.
