About this event

The Leadership in Patient-Oriented Research: Pragmatic Clinical Trials Certificate is a unique training opportunity developed to increase the knowledge, capacity, and practical skills of clinical trial professionals across Alberta. The vision of this program is to create a highly trained workforce to raise the standard for clinical trial conduct in Alberta.

The purpose of the certificate is to integrate currently available training, such as the ACRC recommended training courses, while providing additional content, patient-oriented research concepts, and practical application exercises using real-world and Alberta-specific examples. Upon completion of the certificate, learners will be able to:

  1. Employ a common understanding of information required to work on clinical trials in Alberta
  2. Develop and apply knowledge of specific regulations, good clinical practice, research ethics standards, and trial management
  3. Apply knowledge of resources and structure of clinical trials processes in Alberta
  4. Identify and integrate patient-oriented research principles into practice

This course is accredited for 48 hours of Section 1 credits on behalf of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

NOTE: This course is open to Alberta-based registrants. (If you are uncertain whether you qualify as an Alberta-based registrant, please contact us at absporu@ucalgary.ca)
