Clinical Trial Essentials; Implementation Best Practice

About this Event


This interactive course provides an advanced, practical detailed interactive review of the organizational fundamentals of Good Clinical Practice (GCP). Participants will acquire real-world application of GCP regulations and guidelines for critical elements of the clinical research and development process. This training includes the updates brought by the ICH E6 R2 Addendum.

During this interactive workshop, we will debate in what way clinical research team members can apply systems to achieve data integrity and quality through the trial lifecycle.

Specific attention will be given to how quality systems affect overall data integrity, patient clinical risk, and respective regulatory risk.
