South West Anaesthesia Research Matrix


Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Training

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is the international ethical, scientific and practical standard to which all clinical research is conducted. Compliance with GCP provides public assurance that the rights, safety and wellbeing of research participants are protected and that research data are reliable. (Referenced NIHR website).

All SWARM members involved in research will be required to complete their GCP training prior to participation.  This can be completed as an e-learning package on the NIHR website.  The following links provide more information:
