Do you fully understand the clinical trial regulations governing medical research?  
Are you aware of the approval process in Europe?  
Clinical trials are pivotal to the development of new therapeutic products, however to ensure patient safety they must comply with strict regulations and approval processes. The Clinical Trial Regulation in Europe has created a simpler system to navigate multi-Member state trials in terms of approval and reporting.  
Over seven modules, this course will take you through the history of clinical trial regulations, the new Clinical Trial Regulation and best practices for ensuring a timely clinical trial authorisation. You will explore important frameworks in clinical trial regulations, including: ICH GCP, Ethics Committee Application, Clinical Trials in Children and Adverse Events reporting. 
You will cement this knowledge through case studies highlighting the entire clinical trial process.
