Clinical Trials 101: The fundamentals you need to know

Are you a researcher, PI, new to clinical trials or need a refresher? Clinical Trials 101 is a great place to start.

Clinical Trials 101 covers several of our workshop topics into two sessions to provide you with the fundamental knowledge of working in the sector. 

This interactive workshop series will help you develop a better understanding of the clinical trial process, including all the steps to plan, conduct and evaluate clinical trials and meet regulatory requirements. You will also learn about the responsibilities of the team at each step in the process.

You will get the opportunity to interact with the group and gain different perspectives from others working across the sector.

Part 1 and part 2 are stand alone workshops and can be completed separately. However, as they compliment each other, we advise to complete both.

You can claim 3 CPD points on completion of each workshop.

Part 1: The Australian Landscape

Part 1 covers an introduction to Clinical Trials (trial types – phases, commercial and non-commercial, investigator initiated, first in human and terminology), GCP, roles, and responsibilities of stakeholders, regulation, ethics, governance and navigating regulatory requirements, the critical role of project planning – project and organisational-wide considerations, and consumer priorities.

Part 2: Feasibility and Start-up

Part 2 covers the start-up process, resourcing (people, process, infrastructure), recruitment, budgets, identifying barriers to efficient start-up, and the feasibility process.
