There are many resources that support training for clinical trials investigators and their team members.
Before participating in a clinical trial you'll need to have a good understanding of Good Clinical Practices (GCP) - the principles and processes clinical trial team members and their investigators must follow to protect patient safety and privacy, and to ensure collection of reliable, valid data for regulatory submission.
