Clinical Research Center (CPEC)
The Clinical Research Center (CPEC) is the unit responsible for research in the area of Health within the Irmã Dulce Social Works (OSID). Contributing to the insertion of OSID among institutions of scientific reference in the country, the nucleus began its activities in 1988, with one mission: to elaborate, analyze and conduct clinical research with quality, ethics and transparency, investing in professional training, encouraging self-knowledge and valuing skills and talents.
CPEC has a highly trained multidisciplinary team with training to conduct clinical studies in accordance with Good Clinical Practices (GCP) guidelines, a set of standards recommended by ICH (International Conference of Harmonization). In addition to study coordinators with experience and certification from the IATA (International Air Transport Association) for the shipment of biological samples, the center also has a management for recruitment and retention of patients.
More than 3,000 patients have already been recruited in about 60 research protocols performed at CPEC. Beyond achieving recruitment goals, the center has been notable for the high retention rate of study participants.
In 2013, CPEC was evaluated and received certification as an Inspire site (Pfizer's Investigator Networks, Site Partnerships and Infrastructure for Research Excellence Program). Inspire centers are a strategic set of highly productive centers with high medical capacity, considering the following criteria: reliable recruitment, quality, efficient start up, structure and staff of the center.
