Stakeholder engagement is increasingly recognized as essential for sustaining support for research and generating solutions to complex ethical and operational challenges. The question is no longer “should we engage?” but rather “who and how do we engage for greatest impact?”

The course explores the Good Participatory Practice Guidelines, a normative framework that lays out specific standards for involving stakeholders throughout the clinical trial process. The course is designed for anyone who is responsible for stakeholder engagement at a trial site or who wants to deepen their skill set related to GPP implementation.

The course will run from April 11-June 15, 2018 and learners should expect to spend approximately 2-4 hours on coursework each week.
