A. Course Description:
Good Clinical Laboratory Practice (GCLP) applies principles established under Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) that cover the organizational process and the conditions under which laboratory studies are planned, performed, monitored, recorded and reported. If a laboratory does not have good clinical laboratory practice, the reliability, quality, consistency, and integrity of data generated might be questionable which is crucial to the outcome of any clinical trial. This course will equip the participants with the principles relevant to the analysis of samples from a clinical trial and ensure that these guidelines are carried out in a way that is compliant with the ICH Good Clinical Practices.
