The principles of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) underpin the legal requirements for the conduct of clinical trials around the world. Originally developed as a unified standard by the European Union (EU), Japan and the United States (US), it also forms the basis of national regulation in many other countries, including China, India, Korea and Brazil. A strong understanding of GCP is a fundamental requirement for anyone intending to develop a career in any aspect of clinical research, whether in industry, healthcare provision or academia. This course introduces GCP for new professionals, but also serves as a refresher for those who feel they need it. The programme is clear and simple in design and gives full instructions for use.
