Good Clinical Practice Basic and Refresher

This course is a 10-module program that discusses good clinical practice as it relates to clinical trials.  The discussion is focused on the International Council for Harmonisation (ICH)-E6 (R2) guidelines and applicable regulations in Canada such as Health Canada-Division 5, and The Tri-Council Policy Statement 2.

CITI Canada’s GCP Courses were revised to reflect the updated ICH Harmonised Guideline Integrated Addendum to ICH E6(R1): Guideline for Good Clinical Practice E6(R2). GCP Courses – Version 2 –  now specifically refer to the current ICH E6(R2) guideline and provide ICH E6(R2) training.

Both CITI Canada GCP courses meet the minimum criteria for ICH GCP Investigator Site Personnel Training identified by TransCelerate BioPharma as necessary to enable mutual recognition of GCP training among trial sponsors.

Good Clinical Practice (GCP)

  • Version 1 – 28 Mar 2014
  • Version 2 – 4 Apr 2018 (includes E6 R2 updates)

CITI Canada GCP Refresher

  • Version 1 – 19 Mar 2015
  • Version 2 – 25 Jan 2017 (includes E6 R2 updates)

Who should take this course: The course is suitable for persons proposing to conduct clinical trials primarily in Canada. “TransCelerate BioPharma” which represents a number of biopharmaceutical companies has recognized that the CITI Canada Good Clinical Practice course meets their criteria for ICH GCP training for investigator site personnel. This is significant in that N2 has worked with TransCelerate to assure that the high quality CITI Canada GCP course accessible to N2 members meets their standards. This means if you are working with a TransCelerate affiliated company you can assure them that your CITI Canada training has formal approval and recognition from TransCelerate. Meeting TransCelerate training criteria is the latest milestone in a trend that has seen many biopharmaceutical companies as well as research networks, hospitals and universities accept the CITI Canada GCP course as their gold standard.
