GCP & Clinical Trials Course
Good Clinical Practice & Clinical Trials Course
Gaborone, March 2018
From 12– 16 March 2018, AMBITION colleagues gathered in Gaborone to take part in a 3-day Clinical Trials Course, followed by a 2-day Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Course.
Three participants from each AMBITION recruiting site were in attendance, plus a contingent from BHP, and other local delegates. Presentations were given by a range of colleagues including Profs. Joe Jarvis and Tom Harrison, Drs. David Lawrence and Nabila Youssouf, and Patricia Henley (Head of LSHTM’s Research Governance & Integrity Office).
The delegates also enjoyed a range of collaborative group sessions. We packed a good deal into the courses: the delegates had the opportunity to learn about:
• Principles of Trials, Randomisation, Protocol Critique, Electronic Data Capture, SAE Reporting, and trial management and monitoring
• Principles of GCP, Ethics, Regulatory Authorities, Informed Consent, IMPs and Safety evaluation
