European Forum for Good Clinical Practices Regional Conference
on 2012/10/25 21:19:21 (2857 reads)

The Institut Borja de Bioètica and the EFGCP, in collaboration with the Fundación Víctor Grífols i Lucas, organised the first EFGCP Regional Conference in Barcelona, which turned out to be a success, both in terms of content and attendance.

The Conference was structured on the basis of five main topics: 1) Informed written consent by patients, including the optimisation of contents and clinical paediatric trials; 2) The patient’s needs, in terms of the information required, and the design of the Patient Information Sheet proposed by the EFGCP.

3) Clinical research in emergency conditions and how to initiate it without delaying patient care; 4) The recent European Commission proposal on the new legislative framework for clinical trials, currently under debate, along with its repercussions in Spain; and 5) Possible actions under current legislation to improve the dynamics of clinical trials.

Each of these questions was dealt with at a round table with representatives from Spain and different European countries. Three simultaneous workshops also allowed for in depth debate to take place on questions such as: A Risk-based Approach to Patient Information; the role of new technologies in improving the informed consent process; and Experiences with National Differences in Information Package Constitution. As well as the exchange of opinions between experts from different European nationalities, the results of these workshops were also shared and debated at a plenary session.

The contents of the papers are offered on this web (see detail) and on the EFGCP web (www.efgcp.be). The organisers would like to thank all of those that attended the Conference, along with the numerous messages of support received for the presentation of a European collaboration activity of great interest, in favour of patients, ethics and the advance of biomedical research.
