Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy
This event will provide a deep insight into the long journey which brings pharmacological compounds from bench to bedside, i.e. from trial design for testing new drugs (generation of evidence and its critical appraisal) to implementation of pharmacological treatments for daily use in science and patient care.
Reduction of cardiovascular disease burden by pharmacotherapy is a multistep approach, which requires:
the identification of new potential drugs;
testing new potential pharmacological compounds in a trial setting;
implementation of therapies in clinical practice.
The specific aim of the All About Clinical Trials course is to improve competency and confidence in:
Designing and planning successful clinical trials;
Evaluating and following the correct processes and regulatory procedures (GCP certificate included);
Effectively analysing and interpreting trial data through highly interactive workshops.

Challenges of running clinical trials in a pandemic
Since its launch in 2015, more than 350 participants have taken this course in clinical trials.
95% of participants would recommend the course to their peers
65% attend the course to learn about methodology for designing and running a clinical trial
54% attend the course to learn statistical approaches
“The course allowed me not only to gain a deeper insight into the complex process of organising clinical trials, but it also offered an opportunity to discuss specific methodological pitfalls and interpret the results in cooperation with professionals who represent the highest level of expertise in the field. I highly recommend the course both to experienced investigators and to young researchers, since apart from the conventional aspects of clinical trials methodology; it also presented a novel approach to run the research efficiently and successfully.” Aleksandra Gąsecka, Poland
