The Clinical Research, Drug Safety and Pharmacovigilance Certificate courses are designed to develop specialized knowledge in the most recent developments in clinical research, drug development and pharmacovigilance. Students will learn Good Clinical Practices (GCP), regulatory framework of drug development, organization and management of clinical studies conducted across multiple phases to assess the safety and effectiveness of medications, vaccines, and devices, as well as quality assurance concepts, and current pharmacovigilance methodologies, including Good Pharmacovigilance Practices (GVP).
These courses focus on the global healthcare system as well as the Canadian healthcare system, Canadian regulatory agencies, health care legislation, international guidelines, and standard operating procedures (SOP). Using practical and current real cases, AAPS integrates a unique approach and provides students with the foundation and practical knowledge to formulate a sound clinical development plan; ensure clinical trial data is credible and accurate; and that the rights, integrity and confidentiality of trial subjects are protected.
