The concepts of human research ethics and GCP are the key to proper protection of study participants’ rights, safety and well-being and safeguarding the quality of clinical studies. To facilitate continuous education of investigators and study personnel in human research ethics and GCP, HKU-CTC has entered into an international strategic collaboration with the Training and Resources in Research Ethics Evaluation Programme (TRREE) of the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland.
TRREE is a high-quality, open on-line learning platform accessible to all clinical research personnel free-of-charge, and is a wonderful option for continuous learning. Users may do a simple registration on the TRREE website (www.TRREE.org), and then can start learning anytime, anywhere through the Internet.
The collaboration in TRREE brings together the research ethics expertise of the West and the East and integrates HKU-CTC’s on-site training and TRREE’s on-line learning, and is anticipated to contribute significantly to protection of study participants and quality of human research in emerging regions and also globally.
