Since the globalization of clinical trial activities from mid-1990s, there has been a strong demand by investigators and clinical research personnel in those emerging clinical trial regions, such as Asia, East Europe, Middle East, Africa and South America, for professional training based on international clinical trial standards.
To promote the core principles of subject protection, science and data integrity and to facilitate implementation of such principles at study sites, HKU-CTC has developed a unique training program called PRACTISE® (Professional Research Accreditation for Clinical Trials Investigative Site Executives).
PRACTISE® is a comprehensive training program specifically designed for addressing the needs of clinical investigators, study coordinators and other study site personnel. The program includes 25 modules covering three key areas including (a) clinical trial concepts and compliance; (b) clinical trial preparation; and (c) clinical trial process. Each module can be supplemented by practical sessions comprising case studies, group discussions and quizzes. All PRACTISE® trainers are senior study site management professionals with hands-on experience in clinical trial management and operations.
|25 elective modules offering full coverage for investigators and study site personnel|
|Highly flexible and can be tailored to meet participants’ needs by building programs from any combination of the 25 modules|
|Translating concepts into practice through supplementary practical case studies, group discussions and quizzes|
|Trainers with hands-on experience in clinical research management and operations|
|Available in three languages including English, Mandarin and Cantonese|
Over the past few years, the PRACTISE® program or its individual modules have been delivered to various study sites, research institutions, hospitals and governmental organizations in Asia, Middle East and North Africa regions such as Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, mainland China, Malaysia, Vietnam, UAE and Egypt. It is regarded as a very effective training platform meeting the latest requirements in the rapidly changing international clinical trial environment. Its unique perspectives and insights have also gained very positive feedback and acknowledgement from workshop participants.
