On 16 September 2016, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued a new policy (Policy on Good Clinical Practice Training for NIH Awardees Involved in NIH-funded Clinical Trials; NOT-OD-16-148) stating that NIH-funded investigators and staff should be trained in Good Clinical Practice (GCP). This policy takes effect 1 January 2017.
The policy applies to all NIH-funded investigators and staff “who are involved in the conduct, oversight, or management of clinical trials should be trained in Good Clinical Practice (GCP), consistent with principles of the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) E6 (R2).”
CITI Program GCP training is used by over 1,500 institutions - (including many leading hospitals, academic medical centers, universities, and healthcare companies) - to meet their GCP training needs. The National Institutes of Health (NIH)* requires completion of GCP training that demonstrates that individuals have attained the fundamental knowledge of clinical trial quality standards for designing, conducting, recording and reporting trials that involve human research participants.
