Free ebook: an introduction to continuous learning

Discover how continuous learning improves the quality of clinical trials 

Do you want your team to learn, or simply mark a checkbox?

So, how can training contribute to the quality of research? In this eBook, we examine how the current training system in clinical research works and see how improvements in training methods or implementation of new training strategies, such as continuous learning, can both improve clinical research quality and ensure a motivated research team.

We are diving into people’s learning methods, how information is retained, and how to maximize the learning experience simply by changing the way we conduct GCP training. But most importantly, you will learn how to change from the current system of periodic re-training towards a continuous learning system. 

learn about the benefits of continuous learning


There is higher retention of what has been learned, which improves performance, reduces the risk of error and therefore the quality of data.

save time and money

The amount of time spent on formal re-training is reduced, which also saves money. Learning is integrated into day-to-day work, making it more efficient as no separate training time needs to be planned. The learning can be made personal, reducing irrelevant learning content.

reduce risks and non-compliance

Risks and non-compliance is reduced because employees have constant demonstrable up-to-date knowledge, even after recent procedural changes.

Increased Flexibility

With continuous learning put into practice, your workforce is adaptable and always in ‘learning-mode’ to take on new information and learn as soon as it is available. You’ll be able to respond flexibly to the fast changes in the industry, disruptive technology, and legislation and procedures.  

improved position on the labor market

Many employees put more value into personal development than on material issues and need opportunities for self-development and growth.
