Good Clinical Practice Training (Information below taken directly from the learn.nihr website) What is GCP training? Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is the international ethical, scientific and practical standard to which all clinical research is conducted. Compliance with GCP provides public assurance that the rights, safety and wellbeing of research participants are protected and that research data are reliable.
How often do you need to complete GCP training? This is decided by your Trust/employer, as the answer depends on the research you are involved in, and your previous experience. For clinical trials, the Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) (2004) regulations require that all staff are trained to carry out their duties on each study they are working on. This is not time bound. If you have just had participated in training and a regulatory change is made, you will need to be informed of these changes and understand their implications for your practice.
