What you will learn

The training offers practical guidance to optimize the often-so-difficult recruitment of patients to support the performance of investigators in clinical trials. The 2-day face-to-face training consists of plenary sessions and interactive discussions with the audience on current essential regulations.

Clinical and laboratory investigators will learn about trial setup, implementing protocols, and handle trial responsibilities. Also, they get a basic practical understanding of which processes and resources need to be implemented, how they can structure their own work and which training their team members need, by practicing with real life trial situations. Essentially, a GCP training teaches investigators how to effectively, correctly and reliably justify clinical research.

Course trainers

Representatives from COMBACTE’s clinical (CLIN-Net) and laboratory (LAB-Net) networks, in collaboration with the European Forum for Good Clinical Practice (EFGCP) will be giving the course.

EFGCP founding member and Chairman of the Board Dr. Ingrid Klingmann, project officer Jelle Lyskawa (COMBACTE CLIN-Net, UMC Utrecht), and clinical microbiologist Dr. Annemarie van ‘t Veen (LAB-Net, UMC Utrecht) will be giving the course.

GCP Certificate

After successful completion of the course, a GCP accredited certificate will be provided which is required to participate in clinical trials.
