This six part orientation is strongly recommended for all clinical research personnel who are new to UNC or new to research. The objectives are to introduce research personnel to the UNC offices involved in clinical trials, discuss the federal and local regulations governing conduct of research, and provide an overview of best practices utilized in the implementation of clinical research. Attendees are encouraged to complete both the CITI Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and CITI Human Subjects Protection (IRB/Ethics) modules prior to attending the orientation.

The orientation is divided into 6 weekly modules, held on Tuesday Mornings from 9:30am to 12:00pm in Room 219 Brinkhous-Bullitt Building (TraCS Institute). Research personnel are encouraged to attend all 6 modules, but may choose to attend only those of particular interest or relevance. This week includes the topics:

  • Good Clinical Practices and Study Documentation (Juanita Cuffee)
  • Informed Consent Process (Catherine Barnes)
  • Budgeting for Clinical Research, Accounting of Funds (Jill Cunnup)

As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop in North Carolina and around the world, we will be following the university’s lead and adjusting our event scheduling as needed. We have decided to make this event exclusively a webinar. Please stay tuned for any updates regarding possible rescheduling.

Thank you again for your interest in this TraCS event. Please visit UNC-Chapel Hill’s dedicated coronavirus updates webpage for Carolina’s most recent announcements regarding the COVID-19 situation.
