GCP Refresher for Study Nurses


Professional and well-trained study teams are necessary to ensure that clinical trials are carried out in accordance with national and international guidelines. Study Nurses, in particular, play a central role in guaranteeing compliance. As the primary contact for patients, Investigators and Clinical Monitors Study Nurses ensure that everything runs smoothly at the site, look after subjects, collect and record relevant study data and prepare for monitoring visits and audits. This practical course brings your knowledge and skills up-to-date, and enables you to work independently and play a more responsible role in the conduct of clinical trials.

On completion of the seminar you will receive a certificate that is recognized within the clinical research industry. There is no end of course examination.

The German Association for Study Nurses and Study Coordinators (BUVEBA) was founded in 2011 in order to define the training requirements and qualifications for Study Nurses nationwide. Every year the Association hosts the Federal Congress for Study Nurses to link its members and to discuss current topics within the profession. You can find more information about the Association and its activities at BUVEBA.de.
