Recently TASK Academy, a specific group of staff within the larger company focused on training and skills development, presented on “Implementing Good Clinical Practice at the (trial) site”. This during the kick-off meeting of the European-Latin American TB research collaboration network (EUSAT-RCS), held at the Radboud university medical centre, Nijmegen, the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Here TASK team members Karen Cloete and Lauren Philips presented on various aspects of Good Clinical Practice to representatives of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal and Paraguay. The goal being to develop capacity at their respective research sites through sharing the knowledge and expertise gained from TASK’s 14 years of performing clinical trials.

This forms part of the greater “End TB strategy” launched in 2016 by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

TASK Academy regularly hosts similar accredited GCP courses (in South Africa) for the development of research professionals.
