Ohio State has added a Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) refresher course to its CITI course offering list. Users first complete the basic course and then alternate between the refresher and basic courses every three years. The GCP and ICH CITI courses align with the new NIH policy issued on September 16, 2016 (Policy on Good Clinical Practice Training for NIH Awardees Involved in NIH-funded Clinical Trials; NOT-OD-16-148) stating that NIH-funded investigators and staff should be trained in GCP. This policy takes effect January 1, 2017. The policy applies to all NIH-funded investigators and staff “who are involved in the conduct, oversight, or management of clinical trials” and states that the personnel “should be trained in Good Clinical Practice (GCP), consistent with principles of the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) E6 (R2).” To access CITI, log on at http://go.osu.edu/citi with your Ohio State Internet Username (last name.#) and Password.
