In light of changing advice regarding COVID-19 all training sessions are now virtual until further notice.

Below you will find details of forthcoming training courses and events offered by the King's Health Partners Clinical Trials Office. We offer a range of courses for all KCL, KCH IoPPN / SLAM and Guy's and St. Thomas' Trust staff involved in the conduct of Clinical Trials and other Clinical Research.

GCP Training Sessions:

Good Clinical Practice is an internationally recognised ethical and scientific quality standard which must be observed for designing, conducting, recording and reporting clinical trials that involve the participation of human subjects.

All staff involved in Clinical Trials / Research are required to be qualified by education, training, and experience to perform their respective task(s). This requires all staff to attend GCP training.

The King's Health Partners Clinical Trials Office provides a variety of training sessions to meet the requirements of our staff:

If you have not previously attended a GCP session, or you do not qualify for a GCP refresher, and you are either currently or likely to be working on Clinical Trials of Investigation Medicinal Products (CTIMPS / drug trials) - you require the GCP & the Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) Regulations Course.

ICH-GCP Revision 2 (R2)

As of 14 June 2017, our courses have included information relating to the second revision to the ICH-GCP E6 guideline and are compliant with the updated Transcelerate minimum criteria for GCP training.

However, the additions to the text of ICH E6 are minor and essentially bring it into line with other guidance and regulation already covered in our courses. Therefore, we do not recommend that anyone attend additional training just to gain an R2 update. Instead, you can simply read, initial and date this update document and file a copy with your existing GCP certificate: ICH R2 Summary V1.1 24-10-17 (pdf 600kB).
