OCTOBER 2017 RELEASE

This is the latest version of the e-learning course and introduces the requirements of the process of informed consent in paediatric research. It is written with the assumption that you have an introductory level understanding of the process of Informed Consent, and this is not covered here. 

If you do not already have an understanding of the process of Informed Consent, we recommend that you complete the Introduction to Good Clinical Practice eLearning course first, and return to this later.
