Module 5 - Regulatory Control of Clinical Operations - 7FHH1143

Regulatory Control of Clinical Operations

Next course: May/June/July 2022

Examine the practical regulatory aspects of global clinical research and potential regulatory issues likely to arise during clinical programmes with an emphasis on providing effective advice and solutions in such circumstances.

Overview

This module is designed for regulatory professionals to develop and deepen their understanding of all aspects of the regulation of clinical operations. It allows them to understand the regulatory requirements imposed on clinical research, the processes of preparing documentation for clinical trial authorisation and the ethical and legal considerations. In particular, it will impart the ability to critically appraise actions and report recommendations on the appropriateness of strategies in clinical research.
