This one day course is designed either for those who have not studied Good Clinical Practice (GCP) before or those who have studied it more than two years ago. It is presented very much as a practical introduction to the subject and consists of a mixture of a series of short lectures interspersed with practical activities, culminating in a monitoring workshop where delegates are asked to work in small groups and review trial paperwork in the role of the monitor. This activity allows a lot of the more abstract concepts that have been discussed throughout the day to be brought to life.
