One of the network's aims is to improve the quality of pediatric clinical trials by increasing tailored and focused training provided to investigators, research staff, and pharma industry personnel.
The training focuses on good clinical practice (GCP), on the special features of pediatric clinical trials and on pediatric clinical pharmacology. The aim of the training is also to harmonize and standardize investigators' operational models at a national level.
FINPEDMED works in collaboration with all university hospitals and their clinical research organizations, and training is planned in cooperation with these hospitals to ensure that investigators working at different units are treated equally. FINPEDMED also works in collaboration with private companies and professional organizations. For FINPEDMED members, training is either free of charge or offered at special rates.
