Clinical Research Contracts in Practice
By assuming familiarity with model agreements, this event will take attendees to the next level of practical implementation. Dedicate to sharing examples of day to day working, this case-study led NHS course will focus on contractual challenges that can come up in commercial trials, investigator initiative studies, academic studies and further contracts outside the model agreement.
You’ve just been sent a contract, whether based on a European or US grant, your job is to check it’s ok. There are so many roles and responsibilities within it, you may have an idea of what is happening, but what about the aspects not addressed, who is doing what? When there is currently no one model contract to satisfy the needs of different trials, this NHS training will address the practicalities, answer your questions and build your understanding of the different types of research.
Go beyond the model contract to deal with how the contract might be modified and fully understand clinical research contracts in practice. Key focuses of this study day are:
- Commercial clinical trials – keeping up with the changing face of legislation and the different ways companies address them
- Investigator initiated studies – varying contractor requirements and dealing with different types of subcontracts
- Academic studies involving NHS contractor requirements – examples of responsibilities and processes involved with European or US funding
- Contracts outside of model agreements – how material transfer agreements and confidentiality agreements fit in the contract
If you have attended a past Clinical Contracts course, are looking to brush up your understanding or have particular problem contracts in front of you, this case study driven course will progress your understanding with the practicalities of fitting into different types of contract explained using detailed examples of dealing with the nuances. Come together and network with:
- R&D, Contracts and Finance Officers
- Research Nurses
- Clinical Trial Support Co-ordinators
- Industry, Business and Legal Service Administrators
