This is a professionally developed, interactive and engaging online training course that examines the implications of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that became effective on the 25th May 2018 on those working within Clinical Research.

Pharmaceutical companies and CROs need to ensure that future Clinical Trials are compliant.

Companies need to ensure that their internal policies are aligned with the regulations defined in GDPR and have a plan ready to avoid significant penalties for non-compliance, let alone the cost and impact on trial progress; it is essential to ensure clinical trials are executed to the latest regulatory standards and the highest quality.

This course will provide you with a certificate to add to your CV/portfolio to show others that you are up-to-date with this Regulation. The course includes a handy checklist to check your compliance with GDPR.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
