The Clinical Trial Life cycle – Training for Clinical Research Support Roles


The pharmaceutical and clinical research industries tend to work in silos, and staff in support roles are typically only involved in a specific section of the clinical trial life cycle.

It’s time to break these silos and help staff in support roles see the bigger picture, so that they understand where they fit in the clinical research puzzle, the value of their roles, and how they contribute to participant safety, data integrity, and the overall success of a trial.

Having a good overview and broad understanding of the clinical research journey will improve the communication between silos, as well as the confidence, performance, and adaptability of staff in support roles across the clinical trial industry.

This course was specifically designed by industry experts, and can be completed in 3 hours. This course does not confer GCP-compliance.
