5. Good Clinical Practice in Research at an Academic Research Institution

November 3 | November 10 | November 17 | December 1 | December 15
Zoom

Sponsored by the MGH Division of Clinical Research, Partners Human Research Committee and Partners Human Research Quality Improvement Program

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for designing, conducting, recording and reporting human subjects’ research. GCP guidelines define the roles and responsibilities of the IRB, investigator, and sponsor as well as describe the essential documents needed for the conduct of a study. Compliance with GCP assures that the rights, safety, and welfare of subjects are protected and that the data produced from the research are credible.

After completing this training, the learner will have a comprehensive understanding of GCP and be able to apply those practices to the conduct of clinical research.

Note: To receive a certificate of completion a participant must attend all 5 sessions and successfully pass a post-course assessment through RedCap. RCR Eligibility: Completion of all five sessions of this course will fulfill two lecture/discussion requirements.

Registration is required. Please contact Teresa La with questions.

Tuesday, October 20, 2020, 12:00 – 1:00 pm, Join Webinar via Zoom

Sponsored by the Center for Faculty Development and the Department of Radiology

Beyond the outrageous expense, the quality of care varies wildly, and millions of Americans can’t get care when they need it. This is bad for patients, bad for doctors, and bad for business. Using clear and compelling language, Author Dr. Vivian S. Lee paints a picture that is both realistic and optimistic. It may not be a quick fix, but her concrete action plan for reform—for employers and other payers, patients, clinicians, and policy makers—can reinvent health care, and create a less costly, more efficient, and healthier system for all.
