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.

  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
