View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Background:: Clinical trials play an important role in the generation of evidence-based data in health care practices. To ensure the credibility of data and the safety and well-being of the patients Good clinical practice (GCP) guidelines play an important role. At present, we have little knowledge about awareness of GCP guidelines among health care providers in India.

Aim:: To assess the level of awareness, and perception of the health care providers toward GCP and subsequent change in these after a dayer training session on GCP guidelines.

Settings and design:: A cross-sectional descriptive questionnaire-based study was conducted amongst health care providers, that is, doctors, dentists, nurses of a Tertiary Health Care and Teaching Institute.

Materials and methods:: Participants were given descriptive questionnaire; they completed the questionnaire before and after undergoing a day training program in GCP guidelines.

Statistical analysis used:: The impact of the effectiveness of educational intervention among healthcare professionals was evaluated by two-tailed Z-test.

Results:: Out of 120 participants, 80 were medical doctors, 20 dental doctors, and 20 nurses. A dayse training program on GCP guidelines was found to increase positive attitudes toward various aspects of clinical trials.

Conclusion:: A day's training program on GCP guidelines may help to increase the knowledge as well as awareness about principles and techniques of clinical research, which will increase the credibility of clinical research in the country.

Figure 1: Pre-training awareness of principles of declaration of Helsinki

Mentions: The participants were also questioned about their awareness about principles of the World Medical Association Declaration of Helsinki. Among all respondents, 65 (81.2%) doctors stated that they had knowledge of the declaration but to some extent, only two doctors were fully aware about this declaration [Figure 1]. This was reflected by their response to next question on ethics related to this declaration as only two doctors were able to answer all questions related to the declaration correctly.
