Good Clinical Practice for (non-CTIMP) research

The GCP for Non-CTIMPs Course will provide you with an understanding of the ethics and relevant guidance relating to Clinical Research.

If you are not working on CTIMPs (Clinical Trials of Investigational Medicinal Products) you are not required to be familiar with or adhere to the Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) Regulations, which are the focus of the CTIMP course. Instead we focus on the other regulations, guidance and processes which are applicable to Interventional Clinical Research.

If you are working solely on Non-Interventional Research, this may not be the most appropriate course for you. Please speak to your Sponsor about appropriate training.

Please note.This course does not meet the minimum training requirements for CTIMP studies. Therefore, if you are subsequently required to work on CTIMP studies, you will need to attend the CTIMP GCP Training Course.

Course Outline:

This three-hour course will provide staff with the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out high quality research and to satisfy the requirements of R&D departments.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand the guidance that is relevant to your work
  • Be aware of the changes to the ethics process and the definition and responsibilities of the Sponsor and Investigator
  • Understand the requirements for Informed Consent
  • Understand the processes and significance of Pharmacovigilance / Safety Reporting
  • Define an Essential Document and understand the requirements for clinical trial documentation and data quality at the trial site
  • Understand what a monitor, auditor or inspector will look for when visiting a site


KHPCTO policies do not require staff working solely on non-CTIMP studies to have GCP updates. Therefore, we do not provide a non-CTIMP Refresher.

If another organisation (such as a sponsor or R&D department) does require you to have an update - and doesn't provide one - then you can attend another non-CTIMP course or attend our standard Refresher course, on the understanding that it is primarily focussed on CTIMP research.


This course has been accredited 3 CPD points from the Royal College of Physicians.


This course is available for KCL, IoPPN, KCH, Guy’s, St Thomas’ and SLaM staff. This training is supported by the King's Health Partners Clinical Trials Office; therefore there is no charge to delegates.
