A practical guide to ethical and scientific quality standards in clinical research.

Course information

The course is aimed at site staff involved in the conduct of studies once they have been accepted onto the NIHR Portfolio. Individuals involved in the design and management of portfolio studies are able to access this course but should be aware that it will not address their specific needs.


This course is designed to provide a basic introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and the requirements of the NHS Research Governance Framework, EU Directives and UK Regulations which cover NIHR Portfolio studies and clinical trials conducted within the NHS. The session has a practical focus with the key aim being that participants know what to do to practice excellent GCP when they return to their workplace to ensure that the rights, safety and well-being of patients are always protected.

Expected learning outcomes 

Following the course, participants will have a demonstrable understanding of the background and practical implications of GCP. This understanding is intended to be a foundation for action about translating principles into practice and give participants the confidence to take a proactive role in improving processes and standards within their own work area.
