As part of our effort to offer the best support to our surgical trainees at every step of their journey, we are pleased to introduce a brand new course this year - Good clinical Research Practices.

Taking place at the College on 6 June, the course will provide all the latest information on the new regulations, particularly regarding statutory instruments, additional requirements for informed consent, as well as the importance of the quality management systems and the audit/inspection process.

We spoke with the course convenor Dr. Stuart Clark, NHS Consultant in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, who provided an overview of the course and outlined the benefits of participation.

Who is the course for?

The course is aimed at mid-to-senior Specialist Surgical Trainees who are looking to keep up-to-date with the latest requirements and regulations for conducting clinical trials.

What challenges is the course addressing?

Everyone involved in the conduct of clinical research must be competent to perform their tasks, qualified by education, training and experience. Some of the challenges the course is addressing are regulations and organisation of clinical trials.

What are the learning outcomes?

By attending a combination of presentations and interactive groups, participants will be able to explain the GCP statutory requirements, as well as understand and organise a clinical trial.

What new skills will participants gain that they can apply in the workplace?

Participants will gain up-to-date knowledge of EU & UK regulations, as well as improving their understanding of consent and documentation.
