This seminar will take many aspects of animal health and veterinary research and development through a typical clinical trial, and pay attention to compliance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) as outlined in the two guidelines on safety and efficacy produced by FEDESA and the CVMP.
29-30 Apr 2020
& 27-28 Oct 2020
This two-day course will provide a comprehensive overview and suggest practical approaches to the design, set-up and conduct of veterinary clinical trials in compliance with VICH good clinical practice (GCP) principles and other regulatory guidelines.
The programme will address the responsibilities of all study roles, required documentation, data handling processes and statistical analysis. Sessions will also explore the appropriate quality standards to be applied to warrant data that is acceptable to regulators in the EU and USA.
Delegates will be expected to work through solutions to a number of challenging case studies which will help consolidate learning. There will also be ample opportunity for discussion with the expert faculty who all have considerable experience in this field.
