Quality Assurance & You : A Guide to Conducting High Quality Research in the CTN.

NIDA Center for the Clinical Trials Network (NIDA CCTN).

The Clinical Trials Network (CTN) adheres to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Good Clinical Practice (GCP) standards for conducting pharmacological and behavioral research. These standards include following regulatory guidelines for the protection of human subjects; assessing safety and reporting adverse events; following guidelines for the collection, reporting and storage of study data; and continuous monitoring of protocol adherence.

To help meet those standards, Quality Assurance (QA) procedures are designed to ensure that the study is being conducted appropriately. This brochure is designed to help demystify the process and explain how QA can work for you. (Brochure, PDF, English and Spanish)
