16/11/2022 ONLINE: Inspection Survival Guide: Being Prepared for an MHRA GCP Inspection

Description

09:30 - 13:00 (Zoom)

About

Statutory GCP inspections conducted by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) are an important part of the regulation of clinical trials in the UK. Anyone who sponsors, conducts or supports a clinical trial in humans involving an investigational medicinal product (CTIMP) or a medical device may find themselves face-to-face with an MHRA inspector. What an inspector will be looking for is evidence that trials have been conducted in compliance with applicable legislation and the principles of GCP. It is a daunting prospect for many, but an understanding of what to expect and how to prepare can help smooth the process and lead to a successful inspection outcome.

This virtual half-day course will use presentations and workshops to provide an overview of the GCP inspection process from notification to closure, along with some handy hints and tips for surviving the experience relatively unscathed. It is aimed at anyone who may be involved in an MHRA GCP inspection.

Cost:

  • Student rate (matriculation details required) = £40
  • University of Edinburgh/NHS Lothian = £60
  • Other academic/NHS = £90

For industry rates, please enquire at [email protected].

This Introduction to Copyright and Licensing training course is well-suited to those who require a basic understanding of copyright law, licensing, and open educational resources. For those who already have some knowledge of copyright law and licensing, this course can serve as a refresher. Opportunities for questions and discussions will be ample.

This 1.5 hr training course provides an introduction to copyright including:

  • Components and duration of UK copyright law
  • Public domain
  • UK copyright exceptions related to teaching & research
  • Licences and how they allow specific re-use of copyright protected works
  • Copyright risk assessment

05/10/22 Online: An Introduction to Health Economics

Description

09:30 - 12:30 UK time   |   Online (Zoom)

Health economics is still seen as a bit of a dark art by some, but it is increasingly important in clinical research, funding applications and communicating the value of research. This online session will introduce the key concepts behind health economic evaluation, the motivation for undertaking health economics in a climate of resource scarcity and describe briefly a few of the philosophical debates in health economics at the moment which are particularly relevant to early career clinical researchers. 

 

Learning objectives:

  • Obtain a good overview of the major theoretical and practical approaches to health economics in the UK
  • Understand the relationship between clinical trials and health economics, and between health economics and clinical implementation on the ground
  • 'Know what you don't know' - understand when and where speaking to a health economist might be valuable

Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are key tools in any quality management system. In clinical research, they can help to protect the safety of participants and the integrity of data by ensuring that essential processes are performed correctly and consistently every time. Well written and managed SOPs can enhance the quality, efficiency and credibility of a research project. However, get them wrong and they can quickly become more of a hindrance than a help!

This half-day virtual course is designed for anyone who is involved in writing or managing SOPs in a clinical research setting. In addition to short presentations, the course includes a significant practical component, offering attendees the chance to practice and hone their SOP writing skills.
