Ethical and Legal Aspects of Clinical Trials

More Information

Course Description

The implementation of clinical research projects requires conscientious review of research projects not only in terms of their scientific quality but also in regard to their ethical adequacy and appropriateness. How can we balance the risk benefit of our projects? Given the importance of ethics for the conduct of drug development and research, it should come as no surprise that many different professional associations, government agencies, and universities have adopted specific codes, rules, and policies relating to research ethics.

Each of these aspects will be carefully considered and discussed in the context of international and national principles and guidelines. These issues need to be carefully adhered to strengthen the health of the clinical trial enterprise to the benefit of patients and the overall health of the public. During our course, representatives from different institutions will introduce and discuss the most important concepts, tools, principles, and methods that can be useful in approaching and resolving ethical dilemmas. Realworld examples and case studies will be introduced and discussed.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • Name key principles of ethical considerations during clinical research and development
  • Discuss ethical concerns for designing, conducting and reporting the results obtained through the conduct of clinical trials
  • Understand international and national principles and guidelines which have to be followed when performing clinical trials

ECPM Clinical Trial

DAS Clinical Trial Practice and Management

More Information

Course Description

Successful clinical research requires clinical experience, but also extensive knowledge about all phases of the clinical research process, awareness of regulatory requirements as well as project management and leadership skills. The complex and highly competitive nature of clinical research, results in a growing need for well-trained clinical research professionals, not least those working as study coordinators, study managers, clinical monitors or clinical research assistants.

Clinical research professionals usually start their careers with background knowledge from diverse graduate trainings often lacking structured training in clinical research. Still, they are facing highly demanding responsibilities in a complex, ever-evolving, interdisciplinary and often multinational environment. Fortunately, training at the postgraduate level is increasingly being recognized as essential to developing scientific, technical and interpersonal competences to ultimately enhance the quality of clinical research.

The goal of this program is to prepare trainees for the variety of management and leadership roles in different clinical research settings such as academia, pharmaceutical, medical device or biotech industry, clinical research organisations and regulatory agencies.
