NIH is making Good Clinical Practice for Social and Behavioral Research E-learning courses tailored for behavioral clinical trialists

The goal of this eLearning course is to enable learners to apply good clinical practice (GCP) principles to clinical research investigations involving human subjects as they specifically apply to social and behavioral research.

Effective January 1, 2017, all investigators involved in clinical trials are required to receive Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training in clinical trials (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-16-148.html) The policy is effective January 1, 2017 in regard to steps being taken to meet the expectations "that all NIH-funded investigators and staff who are involved in the conduct, oversight, or management of clinical trials should be trained in Good Clinical Practice (GCP), consistent with principles of the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) E6 (R2).1 "
