Description: Adhering to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is essential in to ensuring your trial is conducted and monitored to the highest ethical, regulatory, and clinical standards. One of the biggest challenges in accomplishing this is achieving compliance through practical, feasible, and easy to understand methods. This is especially true for those who are new to research or have limited resources to begin with. This workshop will cover the topics of what regulators, monitors, and auditors look for, how you can perform study monitoring without breaking the bank, and how protocol-specific training ties this all together.

At the end of this session you will have a greater understanding of how to implement GCP in real-world scenarios, and how a peer-to-peer monitoring system fits into the conduct of cost-effective clinical research.

This session is open to:

– faculty members from U of T

– researchers

– research assistants

– research coordinators

– physicians

– and, clinicians working in research hospitals affiliated with U of T.
