Good Clinical Practice with the Clinical Trials Network
Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is an international ethical and scientific standard for conducting biomedical and behavioral research involving human participants. This standard provides assurance that 1.) The rights, safety, well being, and confidentiality of trial participants are protected. 2.) The data collected in clinical trials, as well as the reported results of clinical trials, are credible and accurate.
National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN), a web of interconnected, mutually supporting researchers and clinicians who are dedicated to improving the quality of drug abuse treatment throughout the nation by testing the effectiveness of new treatments in “real world” settings.
The CTN requires anyone directly involved in the design or conduct of research involving human participants to complete this GCP training. The course is self-paced and takes approximately 6 hours to complete and consists of 12 modules, each discussing a specific GCP standard.
d’Vinci Interactive worked closely with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to create this course. Representatives of NIDA and other contractors prepared and wrote the content.
d’Vinci was tasked with creating imagery that would represent a broad cross section of culturally diverse researchers and patients. To achieve this, we created custom images that reflected diversity through ambiguity. We created stylized images that make it difficult to tell color, nationality or even gender, yet who clearly represent the content being discussed.
d’Vinci was responsible for site design, all programming and graphics
Additionally, d’Vinci did all database programming which included:
- Tracking & storing of applicants’ progress through the course
- Administrative capabilities for adding and editing all files
- Administrative reporting capabilities.
