ICRweb is an e-learning site that provides knowledge required for clinical research, intended not only for medical researchers who conduct clinical research, but also for clinical research coordinators (CRC) and other clinical research professionals who support it, members and secretariat of the ethics review committee, and all those who assist in the administrative work of research. It is also intended for fundamental researchers, epidemiologists, statisticians, and the general public who wish to learn about clinical research.
The content established for each target includes knowledge that individuals involved in clinical research should know, knowledge for researchers who conduct clinical research, supporters, and those related to the ethics review committee, etc. Each content is also open to those other than the target individuals. After completion of each course, you will receive a completion certificate, so we encourage you to collect all the certificates of completion in order.
The content of the Basic Knowledge Course for Clinical Research is what everyone involved in clinical research should know. The course corresponds to mandatory education required in the Ethical Guidelines for Clinical Research announced by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. The content may not always be directly relevant to you at the moment, but the purpose is to provide you with a broad range of basic knowledge that is necessary for engaging in clinical research, and as such, we strongly encourage you to complete the courses. We would be delighted if the ICRweb benefits your clinical research and leads to advances in medicine, thereby contributing to the happiness of as many patients as possible. Please utilize the contents of ICRweb as much as you like!
