Annual Subscription & In-House Training Courses

Don’t lose vital time and data through clinical trial fraud or misconduct:

Make MLI part of your GCP procedures.

Research fraud and misconduct can seriously affect the outcome of your clinical development programme. Identifying possible research fraud and then knowing how to investigate it are challenges for all pharmaceutical physicians and their colleagues who are involved in clinical research.

MLI has long sought to train the pharmaceutical industry and the NHS in the identification and investigation of research fraud and misconduct. Our organisation can only exist with the ongoing support of industry - the next time your clinical development programme is in jeopardy because an investigator is not performing appropriately you will want to turn to MLI for advice and assistance. We can only offer that help and assistance if we have your support.

There are two ways in which your company can support MLI.

Annual Subscription

For a small annual subscription payment, companies can have peace of mind knowing that when misconduct surfaces, MLI will be available for that necessary support and advice. GCP procedures are tightening especially now with the EU Directive. Companies that subscribe will receive benefits such as reduced rates for investigations, free attendance at for-cause audits and cost reduction for training courses.

In-House Training Courses

Now is a good time to ensure that your staff are ahead of European inspectors. All clinical research personnel should be regularly updated and trained in critical aspects of good clinical practice. MLI will organise tailored in-house courses for your teams during your annual GCP training. Delegates will also be taught investigative skills to help with interviews particularly at for-cause audits.
