Introduction to good research practice (online)

If you are planning to run a ‘non-CTIMP’ research study this introductory course is for you. Not all research is subject to clinical trials regulations, but the same standards of conduct apply.

This three-hour online course consists of trainer-led presentations, short video talks from those experienced in the conduct of clinical research and interactive exercises.

The course is run by the experienced research support specialists from the University of Oxford and Oxford University Hospital’s Joint Research Office.

  • purpose of good research practice including historical background
  • difference between clinical care and research practice
