Good Clinical Practice (GCP) (Healthcare)
- 3 days (2 days can be customized)
- Course fee
- It is essential for anyone taking part in the running of clinical research and trials.
- It is important that everyone involved in research is trained or appropriately experienced to perform the specific tasks they are being asked to undertake.
- Good clinical practice (GCP) is an international ethical and scientific guideline for clinical research which includes designing, planning, conducting, monitoring, recording, and reporting of biomedical studies or trials that involve human participants.
- GCP ensures that the studies are carried out in a scientific and ethical manner. These guidelines have two important principles, namely, protection of rights of human participants and the credibility of data generated.
- The central objective of GCP in human studies is to give priority to the well-being of human participants. The interest of science and society should not be above the wellbeing of the participants.
- Adherence to GCP guidelines by the researcher provides public confidence that the rights, safety, and well-being of human participants involved in research are protected.
- It has been observed that researchers require basic GCP training and to strengthen the knowledge and awareness regarding GCP. Considering this, we had decided to conduct a training session on an overview of GCP.
