This week, TREAT TB launched an online Good Clinical Practice (GCP) course for pharmacists.  The course was developed for pharmacists involved in the STREAM Clinical Trial to build their capacity  in clinical research. Jan Komrska, the STREAM pharmacist highlighted that “Traditional GCP trainings consist of basic courses aimed at physicians and nurses involved in clinical trials.  In contrast, the TREAT TB/STREAM course is an interactive web based tool specifically tailored to the pharmacists involved in STREAM  to enhance their understanding of the critical role they play in the delivery of patient care to STREAM participants. It focuses on management and accountability of trial drugs.”

The course is accessible here and would be a useful tool for any pharmacist involved in clinical research.

STREAM Stage 2 is the result of a unique collaboration between USAID, Janssen Pharmaceuticals and The Union/Vital Strategies.
