4 GOOD CLINICAL PRACTICE TRAINING Monday 10 th November 9:30am-1pm Level 1 Sydney Children s Hospital Hosted by Sydney Children s Hospital Clinical Research Centre Registrations Necessary! Fee applies. Contact: Nisha Berthon-Jones Good clinical practice (GCP) is an international quality standard that is provided by the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH), an international body that defines standards, to regulate clinical trials involving human subjects. GCP enforces guidelines on ethical aspects of a clinical study. High standards are required in terms of comprehensive documentation for the clinical protocol, record keeping, training, and facilities, including computers and software. Quality assurance and inspections ensure that these standards are achieved. GCP aims to ensure that the studies are scientifically authentic and that the clinical properties of the investigational product are properly documented. Ongoing research shows that whether conducting research involving a new drug, a behavioural intervention, or an interview or survey, GCP provides investigators and their study teams with the tools to protect human subjects and collect quality data. The Sydney Children s Hospital Clinical Research Centre (SCH CRC) in conjunction with UNSW Paediatric Research Week will be holding ICH-GCP Training on Monday 10 th November. Places are strictly limited, to reserve you spot - please Nisha Berthon-Jones, Manager, SCH CRC The workshop is licenced through the Paediatric Trials Network Australia. This course is interactive and an attendance certificate is issued at the end which can be placed in training folders as required for clinical trials. Workshop Outline: Understand the principles of GCP and how to apply them to all human research projects Australian researchers undertaking drug and device research must comply with the TGA s Notes for Guidance on Good Clinical Practice (GCP), but GCP is not only relevant to drug and device research, it guides us in good practice for all human research. This workshop will provide you with an understanding of the key GCP principles and how to apply them.
