Dates:             18-20 July, 2017.

Venue: College of Medicine, Research Support Centre.

This is an introductory course to the basics of good clinical laboratory practice. This is particularly important for laboratory groups that are involved in clinical trials research. They need to be able to rely on data obtained from the laboratory to ensure patient safety. Any laboratory that also provides results to patients, whether in a hospital setting or otherwise, would do well to adopt the practices of GCLP. This reduces error and ensures reliability of results and increases trust of doctors in the laboratory.
