Good Clinical Practices (GCP)

 

As of January 1st 2017, Good Clinical Practices (GCP) training is required for all PIs receiving NIH funds (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-16-148.html).

 

The CCTS voucher program is funded using NIH funds so all voucher recipients must complete the GCP module.

The module “Good Clinical Practice and ICH” can be found on the CITI site: http://go.osu.edu/citi

 

While the NIH policy on Good Clinical Practices is an expectation for researchers involved in the conduct, oversight, and management of clinical trials, GCP serves as the highest scientific, ethical, and practical standard for clinical research.  As such, the CCTS is requiring that all investigators who wish to apply for CCTS services and funding have completed GCP training.  Compliance with GCP training requirements demonstrates the commitment of the CCTS and OSU to providing public assurance that the rights and safety of research participants are protected and that the research data generated at our institution is of the highest quality and reliability.
