The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Policy on Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Training became effective January 1, 2017. This policy applies to NIH-funded investigators and site staff responsible for the conduct, management and oversight of NIH-funded clinical trials. An NIH Clinical Trial is defined as Research studies in which one or more human subjects are prospectively assigned to one or more interventions to evaluate the effects of those interventions on health-related biomedical or behavioral outcomes. An intervention is defined as a manipulation of the subject or subject’s environment for the purpose of modifying one or more health-related biomedical or behavioral processes and/or endpoints.
