Start date
11 May 2017
Location
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract
This short course consists of three half days spread over three weeks. During the time we have together we will develop and try out different strategies to help us write and we will look in detail at some of the specific writing tasks that we face in science. In particular, we will spend time on developing a strategy for writing a scientific paper. Because the course is over three weeks each participant will be invited after each session to prepare some short pieces of writing that will be individually critiqued by the course presenter Allan Gaw.

Edinburgh CRF: Blueprints: Protocol Writing Workshop
ID
899029
Start date
11 May 2017
Location
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract
All scientific research must be planned carefully. In clinical research, we must document our experimental plans in the form of a protocol. This document forms the basis of any submission to a research ethics committees and other regulatory authorities. It is also the blueprint for how the study will be conducted, analysed and reported. Being able to write a protocol is a specific professional writing skill like any other that can be taught. In this workshop, Allan Gaw, will take delegates through the elements of a good protocol, and, using a mixture of short lecture presentations and practical activities, he will develop an effective and efficient strategy for writing a protocol.

Edinburgh CRF: NRS Introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP)
ID
898994
Start date
23 May 2017
Location
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract
This one day course is designed either for those who have not studied Good Clinical Practice (GCP) before or those who have studied it more than two years ago. It is presented very much as a practical introduction to the subject and consists of a mixture of a series of short lectures interspersed with practical activities, culminating in a monitoring workshop where delegates are asked to work in small groups and review trial paperwork in the role of the monitor. This activity allows a lot of the more abstract concepts that have been discussed throughout the day to be brought to life. While the principles of the GCP that are covered in the course are common to a wide range of different types of clinical research the course does focus on the drug trial specific legislation. However, it also tries to promote the ‘GCP-mindset’ needed to satisfy inspectors and auditors, and would therefore be useful for all clinical researchers.

Edinburgh CRF: Data Management for Researchers
ID
899086
Start date
12 Sep 2017
Location
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract
The collection, processing and analysis of data are at the heart of all research. For our research to be meaningful we must ensure that the data we collect are complete and accurate, recorded carefully and processed appropriately before they can be analysed. In this workshop, Allan Gaw will take delegates through the general principles of data management as they apply to research and will, through a series of examples, show how to put these principles into practice. Importantly, please note that this workshop will not cover any aspect of statistical analysis of research data and it will focus primarily on the collection and processing of quantitative data.

Edinburgh CRF: Putting it Together: Project Management in Clinical Research
ID
899124
Start date
02 Nov 2017
Location
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract
A successful research project does not solely depend on an important research question and a well designed protocol, but also on the efficient execution of the project. Many research projects fail to complete on time and on budget and some struggle even to get off the ground. In this half-day workshop we will apply the principles of project management to clinical research and show how by applying some simple tools and techniques we can solve many of the common problems we face and avoid others altogether. The workshop will consist of a series of short, interactive lectures, interspersed with practical exercises.
