Clinical Trials BC

Quality Management Program



Quality has long been a mandatory requirement in the life cycle of all therapeutic products, and is incorporated into regulations and law within all regulatory authorities globally. Quality in clinical trials and surveillance has recently been reinforced in the Good Clinical Practice Modernization initiatives.


Our quality program is focused on building a culture of quality and community in clinical research.


Quality Management System (QMS) Program


The Quality Management System (QMS) Program is a provincial program offering services, resources, and support for the development and implementation of Clinical Trials BC’s Quality Management System in BC centres, health authorities, academic institutions and agencies.


The program includes:

  • Development and implementation planning
  • Quality Management Systems and tools
  • Community of practice

Email us if you have any questions about the QMS program and to register.


Quality Leadership Program



This quality program is open to qualified investigators, research team managers, quality designates and senior coordinators looking to improve their quality management leadership skills. Clinical Trials BC provides open hours for general consultation on Wednesday mornings. This open forum has been popular, as programs or centres in the earlier development phase met with Clinical Trials BC regularly for detailed training in alignment with their quality development plans. We also met with the advancing groups monthly for ongoing development and mentorship meetings.


Quality Leadership Course

The Quality Leadership Program was established in 2017. It is presented as a series of 8 small group sessions in Zoom meeting format. The program introduces preliminary quality concepts and principles and links to overall quality and risk management. It is targeted to new quality associates or quality personnel involved in the implementation of Clinical Trial BC’s Quality Management System (QMS) program into institutions.


The course will be run over three months from March to May 2023. Attendance is limited and is by application. Registration will open in January 2023. Check back for how to apply.
