In addition to our training other resources are available. These include:
- The HRA has six e-learning modules covering
- Medical devices
- Use of the HRA Schedule of Events
- Research involving participants lacking mental capacity

- Confidentiality and information governance considerations in research
- The MRC Research Support Centre offers both e-learning and face-to-face courses on various aspects including, but are not limited to confidentiality, human tissue legislation, IRAS, handling health-related research findings, and public engagement training.
It is QMUL and BH policy that all researchers conducting research at our sites must attend appropriate training. It is mandated that all researchers of MHRA regulated trials must complete a GCP course and refresh it every 2 years. The same is advised as best practice for all other researchers.
For Chief Investigators and their team leads our substantive and refresher courses are mandatory. For all other sponsored research the please see the sponsor's criteria for what training is necessary. For site delivery staff the NIHR training programme is generally suitable.
If you have completed relevant training in research governance, good clinical practice or good clinical laboratory practice, it is important to ensure that you record this.
