The GCP Practical Implementation online course was developed last year and takes users into the workplace so they can see how to apply what they have learned in real-life situations. The need for training to advance from theory to practice was highlighted at last year’s European Federation of Good Clinical Practice Annual Conference, held in Budapest, Hungary in February. The same objective was behind Infonetica’s decision to develop that course. Author Nick Deaney - a chartered scientist in clinical research - has placed case scenarios strategically throughout the practical implementation course, taken from real-life examples encountered during his 30 years in the industry. As trainees progress through the course, they are presented with situations that apply and reinforce the principles they have learnt. These problems require careful analysis and response, preparing students for effective application in the workplace. The course is designed to give them the confidence that they are performing at the expected level, can deal with issues that may arise and are prepared for internal and external audits. Having worked up to Research Director level in a major pharma group, Nick has experienced numerous US FDA and UK MHRA inspections, so is well versed in compliance issues.
Successful trainees receive a certificate accredited by the Royal College of Physicians’ Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine (London, UK), and 9 CPD points as well as the option of being added to a publicly accessible database of GCP-certified personnel who have passed the course.
Two versions of the GCP Practical Implementation course are available - one for the UK and one for the international market. The courses are available online (price £69 +VAT) at www.onlinegcp.com to individuals and organisations around the world who are dedicated to designing, conducting and monitoring trials.
