1 The Responsibility of the Investigator in Good Clinical Veterinary Practice – An Introduction

This programme has been commissioned by the Animal Health Committee of BARQA and sponsored in part by Merial, Moredun and Pfizer. The programme highlights the key factors that the Investigator must take into account for the conduct of a successful trial. The interaction of the Investigator and the Monitor is clearly defined. The requirement to carefully review and understand the Protocol, the importance of Informed Consent, the need for specified withdrawal periods and the maintenance of accurate records from source data are all demonstrated. The reporting of adverse events and the need to accurately account for all test substances lead up to the preparation of the Final Report. The roles of the companion animal investigator, the fish farm manager and the farmer are briefly described in this 15 minute introductory programme. Follow this link for the programme extract

2 The Principles of Good Laboratory Practice - An Introduction

Originally commissioned in 1988, the programme has now been revised and updated to take into account current guidelines and practices. This programme is suitable for laboratory, QA and support staff. The video raises considerations on the validity of procedures by looking at a study conducted pre-GLP through a combination of narration and laboratory scenes. The content equally applies to the toxicity testing of agricultural pesticides, animal, human medicine and food additives. Clearly, only some of the principles of GLP can be illustrated in this short 20 minute introductory programme. Follow this link for the programme extract

3 The Principles of Good Clinical Practice - An Introduction

This programme was originally commissioned in 1990 and has now been re-edited to include a brief history of GCP up to the acceptance of the ICH Harmonised Tripartite Guidelines by the European Union in January 1997. The programme explains who carries out the studies and how investigative centres are selected. The preparation of the Protocol, convening of ethics committees and the importance of informed consent are illustrated. This programme is suitable for prospective clinical investigators, prospective ethics committee members, pharmacy and medical students, new clinical investigative staff and 'in-house' training programmes.
