ICR and Phlexglobal deliver new GCP compliance in document management course

ICR (Institute Of Clinical Research) : 03 March, 2008  (New Product)
A new Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Compliance in Document Management course examining up-to-date methodologies and guidance has been delivered by the Institute of Clinical Research (ICR) in association with the specialist contract research organization, Phlexglobal.
The course was aimed at anyone involved in the management of clinical trial documentation and covered subjects including the EU Clinical Trials Directive, Declaration of Helsinki, the consent, ethics, archiving, auditing and tracking of archived documents and the requirements of archives for long-term storage.

The course, which was worth 10 CPD points for members, was held at the ICR’s new conference and training facilities at its Buckinghamshire headquarters in Bourne End, UK. Delegates were able to use the facility’s conference and break-out areas to discuss the subjects covered on the course.

ICR chief executive officer Dr John Hooper commented: “This was the first of what we hope will be a series of many similar courses. In fact, it was so oversubscribed that we have organised a second course on 21 May 2008, which is already filling fast.

“We are certainly looking at working with Phlexglobal, and other clinical research companies, on delivering further targeted and highly-relevant courses in the future. We are currently in discussions to run two further courses with Phlexglobal in September and December 2008.”

Phlexglobal is a specialist CRO delivering clinical trial administrative support and providing clinical research professionals. Managing director Nicola Murgatroyd commented: “This course was aimed at clinical research associates (CRAs), clinical trials administrators (CTAs) and archivists and really will have helped all who attended to improve their management of documents.

“We know that this area is complex and therefore guidance, using up-to-date methodologies and thinking, needs to be communicated throughout the industry. It also has to be said that the location and environment at Institute House was both ideally situated and suited and we look forward to similar events in the future.”

The ICR’s conference and training facilities also include a resource centre with a collection of clinical research resources that provide a pleasant environment for its members to study or keep in touch with their emails during breaks.
