SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
The European Centre for Clinical Research Training (ECCRT),
company, has been recognized by TransCelerate BioPharma Inc. as an
official training facility that meets the standards established for
investigator training by this association of biopharma companies.
TransCelerate BioPharma Inc. is a non-profit organization focused on
advancing innovation in research and development (R&D), identifying and
solving common R&D challenges, and further improving patient safety,
with the goal of delivering more high quality medicines to patients. It
has established several clinical data standards, including study site
qualification and training. Once accredited by the organization, ECCRT
is recognized by all members of the organization as an approved
training facility for investigators - which in turn, means that all
investigators trained by this facility meet the standards established.
"SynteractHCR and its training facility are dedicated to supporting even
higher levels of proficiency in the industry," says Gerald Van Roey,
M.Ph.Ed., managing director at ECCRT. "To achieve this end, it was
imperative for us to be acknowledged as an industry-recognized site for
investigator training. Training is an important investment for
companies, and one that will pay off in the long-run, in having both
more engaged employees and better patient care."
TransCelerate evolved from discussions at various forums for executive
R&D leadership to discuss relevant issues facing the industry and
solutions for addressing common challenges. SynteractHCR supports the
goal of this organization to enhance focus on qualitative training based
on good course design, correct methodology and Good Clinical Practice.
As part of its ICD+ initiative, SynteractHCR seeks out ways to increase
efficiencies, streamline process and improve outcomes; ECCRT's
recognition by TransCelerate meets the goals of the organization as well
as that of its parent company.
