ISO 14155 Training GCP - Sponsor and Investigator-initiated Trials

Qserve Medical Device CRO and consultancy offers you a hands-on GCP course that supports your everyday clinical operations and quality issues. Our course is set up especially for professionals in the medical device industry that work on clinical trials, PMCF studies and investigator-initiated trials (IIT), on a regular basis.

During this one-day course, the content of the ISO-14155 GCP standard for medical devices will be our guide. During the interactive sessions, we will discuss practical implementation of the standard. Theory will be supported by real live examples of difficulties and mistakes on the one hand, but also practical and clever solutions that avoid unnecessary bureaucratic burdens on the other hand. At the end of the day, you will go home with knowledge, GCP skills and practical ideas to implement directly within your organization.
