At the 12th Congress of ECCO in 2016, N-ECCO and ClinCom launched together the 1st edition of the School for Clinical Trialists, tailored towards Clinical and IBD nurses, and also allied health professionals. The 2nd edition, organised by ClinCom, took place at the ECCO Congress in Barcelona, in 2017.
With this Course, ECCO intends to offer delegates who have an interest in clinical trials the possibility to learn more about setting up and running clinical trials, clinical trial terminology and processes, and to address issues such as patient recruitment. Furthermore, delegates will be provided with tips and tricks for within the IBD clinical research team. The aim of the School for Clinical Trialists is to ultimately improve education on clinical trials.
The 3rd School for Clinical Trialists will take place at the 14th Congress of ECCO in 2019.
