Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training for clinical researchers
The Clinical Trials Support Unit offers onsite TransCelerate accredited GCP programs. These programs are tailored to all staff involved in clinical research and their supporting departments such as Pathology, Nursing and Pharmacy.
The course content promotes a depth of understanding about conducting research involving humans within south western Sydney and the Australian environment, through interactive scenarios and discussion.
All Researchers are ethically responsible to conduct clinical research of the highest quality. This includes the collection of high quality, credible data that contributes to the answering of specific scientific questions, while protecting the rights, safety and well-being of clinical trial participants. These principles have their origin in the World Medical Association’s Declaration of Helsinki.
GCP standards exist to provide a benchmark of clinical research quality that can be relied upon throughout the world.
As endorsed by SWSLHD Chief Executive, in collaboration with the Research Director and Research and Ethics Manger, GCP training is a mandatory requirement for all staff involved in clinical trials in south west Sydney.
