Virtual workshop

Clinical Trials 101

Are you are 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 virtual workshop topics into two sessions to provide you with the fundamental knowledge of working in the sector. 

Delivered in 2, 5-hour virtual workshops, you will also 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.

Participants can claim 4 CPD points on completion of each workshop.

Part 1: The Australian Landscape

Part 1 will cover an introduction to Clinical Trials (trial types – phases, commercial and non-commercial, investigator initiated, first in human and terminology), GCP, the start-up process, roles and responsibilities of stakeholders, identifying barriers to efficient start-up, and the feasibility process.

Part 2: Feasibility and Start-up

Part 2 will cover regulation, ethics, governance and navigating regulatory requirements, resourcing (people, process, infrastructure), recruitment, budgets, the critical role of project planning – project and organisational-wide considerations, and consumer priorities.

What will you learn?

At the completion of these sessions, you will:
