Overview of Good Clinical Practice Training - 
The Good Clinical Practice (GCP) online training consists of 12 modules. Each module discusses a specific GCP standard. General conduct of research standards are also presented.
Pop-up screens with definitions and links to other web sites and documents provide additional information. You may make this training as comprehensive as you like by reading only the required information or by examining the linked documents and web sites that interest you.
There is a quiz that must be completed by every CTN staff member who is required to complete GCP training for protocol or node requirements. The quiz questions are based on the information provided directly in this course, including pop-up summaries and definitions. The questions are not based on information provided in the external linked documents or web sites.
These modules may be completed one at a time or may be completed in one sitting. The approximate time to complete each module is:
Introduction – 10 minutes (no quiz for this module)Institutional Review Boards – 30 minutesInformed Consent – 60 minutesConfidentiality & Privacy – 30 minutesParticipant Safety & Adverse Events – 45 minutesQuality Assurance – 30 minutesThe Research Protocol – 20 minutesDocumentation & Record–Keeping – 25 minutesResearch Misconduct – 30 minutesRoles & Responsibilities – 25 minutesRecruitment & Retention – 30 minutesInvestigational New Drugs – 30 minutesYou may either complete all the modules and then take the quizzes, or you may take the quiz related to a module when you have completed the reading for that topic. The questions for each module are located on the last page of the module. Once you’ve completed a module, excluding the quiz, a link to that quiz will be available on the Main Menu.
Successful completion requires an overall score, for all quizzes, of 80% or better.
A certificate will be available for printing once you successfully complete the course. The link to your certificate will appear on the main menu.

    unable to access the materials

  • GHN_Editors The Editorial Team 23 Sep 2013

    If you follow the link, you will come to a log in page. If you don't yet have a log in, you can simply press 'register', fill in the information, and then access the materials. I have tried it thismorning and it seems to be working. If you have further problems, please let me know but please explain what the problem is (i.e. are you getting an error message? unable to find where to log in?) and we can try and advise.

    Please note that the pages references are not actually part of the Global Health Network itself.

    Kind regards

    It sounds like maybe you are trying to log in without registering first, so the system is telling you it doesn't know your email address? If you don't have an account yet, instead of just entering your email on the first page (which is for registered users), you need to click on 'register as a new user'. This is just underneath the bit where you've been previously entering an email address and password. This will bring up a page of questions so you can set up an account.

    If you are sure you've registered before and are using the correct log in details, you should contact the NIH Training group to let them know the problem and see if they can help you. This page tells you about their project and there is a contact email at the bottom for them:

    However, it could also be an access issue with your own servers and may be worth getting someone who helps with your computers and IT to check it for you if you can in case they need to enable access to those sites.

    I would recommend trying to register as a new user FIRST and then do the other two things next if you still can't log in.

    Good luck!

    yes,the link is unable to open,it showing error page

  • GHN_Editors The Editorial Team 3 Oct 2013

    Hello, I have tried it again from here and it is working. What I suggest therefore is that you contact whoever looks after your computers at work, since it might be that they have disallowed access to certain sites.

    If they can't help you or don't think this is a problem with the access they have on the computers, then contact NIH training themselves on the link I gave in my previous comment. Make sure you specify the type of error for them (e.g. write down the message that the computer is giving you) because that will help them to understand the problem.

    Good luck.

    If you're still stuck and want to learn about GCP, Global Health Trials also has a free GCP eLearning course, which you can access above by clicking the 'eLearning tab', and then 'eLearning short courses'.

  • manuelbzacarias Manuel 17 Oct 2013

    I just registered. How do I proceed?

  • GHN_Editors The Editorial Team 18 Oct 2013

    Dear Manuel

    do you mean you've registered with Global Health Trials and want to proceed, or you've registered with this specific course and want to proceed? With Global Health Trials, have a look at the 'Get started' button at the top for lots of ways to become involved with the whole community.

    To get started with the GCP course, you need to register and then go to the course modules to begin them.

    kind regards

    If you are interested in online training - you will probably find our new research ethics course, developed in collaboration with the WHO, of interest too: You can access this, and many other courses, here - http://globalhealthtrials.tghn.org/elearning/other-resources/
