Best Practices for Social and Behavioral Research

Last modified: February 9, 2022

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for designing, conducting, recording and reporting clinical trials. The principles of GCP help assure the safety, integrity, and quality of clinical trials. Investigators and clinical trial staff who are competent in GCP principles will be better able to assure that the rights, safety and well-being of human subjects are protected; that clinical trials are conducted in accordance with approved plans and with rigor and integrity, and that data derived from clinical trials are reliable. In 2014 NCATS recognized a critical need for training in applying GCP to social and behavioral research. The Social and Behavioral Research Best Practices course was developed to fill this need and provide GCP training that is relevant for social and behavioral research study team members. The eLearning course includes nine video modules developed to run in a learning management system (LMS) managed at an institution.
