EFGCP Annual Conference 2017 on Meeting the Ethical Standards under the Clinical Trials Regulation: the Burning Questions (and Answers) for Researchers, Sponsors and Patients
From 21/02/2017 to 22/02/2017 (Brussels)

The Clinical Trial Regulation is now less than 2 years away and if we are to grasp this opportunity to improve research and regulation for patient benefit, it’s imperative we look together (public, patients researchers and regulators) at both the procedural requirements and ethical changes required.

As one of the most important, longstanding, European fora for debate around clinical research, bringing all interested parties together, the European Forum for Good Clinical Practice has taken an active role in approaching the new CTR (link meeting April 13th). It is proposed that the 2017 A/C will discuss procedural arrangements already underway and address the ethical challenges that the CTR presents, providing opportunity for debate, access to expertise and examples of how these challenges can be met. Workshops with people who can support and help you to solve your problems will be organised.
