Fall 2020 Leadership in Patient-Oriented Research: Pragmatic Clinical Trials Certificate
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:
- Employ a common understanding of information required to work on clinical trials in Alberta
- Develop and apply knowledge of specific regulations, good clinical practice, research ethics standards, and trial management
- Apply knowledge of resources and structure of clinical trials processes in Alberta
- Identify and integrate patient-oriented research principles into practice
The Fall 2020 cohort runs from September 16 – January 21, 2021 with mandatory ONLINE attendance days on September 16 & 17, 2020 and January 21, 2021.
The usual 2 in-person days at the beginning and end of the certificate were a great way for learners to get to know each other and some of the resources available. However, COVID-19 guidelines indicate we need to modify this content for on-line learning.
