GCP/eBROK

Good Clinical Practice
Clinical investigation (perhaps with newly discovered drugs) involving human subjects is a precarious activity and could lead to ethical dilemmas. Therefore, laws and regulations apply to ensure good clinical practice. As an investigator in a clinical trial, you need to know about the relevant national and international laws and regulations.

(e)BROK®
In 2006 the Basic course on Regulations and Organisation for clinical investigators (BROK) was set up - a joint initiative of the eight university medical centres (UMCs) in the Netherlands. In accordance with national agreements, clinical investigators working for the UMCs or involved in research are obliged to follow the BROK® course and obtain the corresponding certificate.
Elevate is currently developing the new eBROK® course which will become available in February 2019.
