Introduction to GCP

In 2004, with the implementation of the Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) Regulations 2004, the University of Dundee and NHS Tayside established a working group of multi professional staff experienced in the management and conduct of clinical research, to develop and deliver GCP training to investigators and multidisciplinary staff involved in clinical research. This working group, formerly known as the GCP Training Review Group, is now known as the Clinical Research Training Committee.

To-date, more than 1000 clinical researchers and support staff, from across Tayside, have attended the Introduction to GCP course, which comprises a series of presentations and interactive sessions. A certificate of attendance is issued to attendees along with course handouts and a copy of the ICH Harmonised Tripartite Guideline for Good Clinical Practice. Courses are held at Ninewells Hospital approximately 4 times per year and CRC Tayside maintains a register of all attendances. 

If you have never had GCP training before please e-mail crc.tayside@nhs.net  to reserve a place on a forthcoming course. If you have a query please contact administration team on  632287
