Clinical Trials Executive Committee (CTEC)

Any clinical research study (hereafter referred to as 'trials') involving patient contact at the Beatson Clinical Research Facility (BCRF) must be reviewed by the hospital's internal steering committee, the Clinical Trials Executive Committee (CTEC). This is the first step for approval of a study and takes place prior to any local regulatory submissions being processed. CTEC reviews all protocols (both trials co-ordinated by the CTU and trials where the BCRF is a participating trial site) that will make use of CTU and CRU resources. CTEC also reviews and approves all CTU quality documentation and standard operating procedures (SOPs). In addition, CTEC reviews any trial which is to open in the SCRN-W, irrespective of whether or not the BCRF is a proposed site. The committee also maintains oversight of all recruitment figures at BCRF and across the network.
