Social and Behavioral Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Training

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is a process that incorporates established ethical and scientific quality standards for the design, conduct, recording and reporting of clinical research involving the participation of human subjects. NCATS led a Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA)-wide initiative to promote GCP training for clinical trial personnel, resulting in the establishment of eLearning courses. 

The goal of these courses is to enable learners to apply GCP principles to clinical research investigations involving human subjects as they specifically apply to social and behavioral research.
