The mission of the Association of Clinical Research Professionals is to provide global leadership to promote integrity and excellence for the clinical research profession.
ACRP is the primary resource for clinical research professionals in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries, and those in hospital, academic medical centers and physician office settings. ACRP was founded in 1976 to address the distinct educational and networking needs of research nurses and others who supported the work of clinical investigations. With its own professional society came the recognition of a new distinctive profession — that of the clinical researcher. More than 30 years later, ACRP is a global association comprised of more than 18,000 individuals in over 60 countries dedicated to clinical research and development.

Clinical trials at university hospitals are increasingly important for the management of patients’ health.
It is a real challenge to conduct the trials in compliance with good clinical practice and research guidelines and regulations, in a scientific and technical environment which performs well because of a thorough organisation and qualified staff. This requires up-to-date knowledge and training opportunities for the institution and its staff. The Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Brugmann finds that the EFGCP activities create a stimulating environment which helps it fulfill its research mission.

The European Society of Oncology Pharmacy, founded in 2000 in Prague, is the largest organisation of oncology pharmacists in the world with over 3200 members from 48 countries.

Aim and Objectives
ESOP supports optimal treatment for cancer patients with objectives to develop and promote clinical and oncology pharmacy practice through:

1. Education and training;
2. Safe handling and administration of drugs;
3. Quality management;
4. Research and development;
5. Pharmaceutical care.

The Oncology Team – Co-operation
The pharmacy as coordinator of Centre of Cytotoxic Therapy implements quality management of oncology pharmacy services and takes responsibility in patient care and personnel protection regarding all areas of cytotoxic therapy. The pharmacy collects and processes all medical and toxicological data relevant to cytotoxics, as well as supportive measures. Focusing on cytotoxic treatment alone is not enough. We also need to focus on appropriate diet, adequate analgesic medication and correct anti-emetic scheme, and we cannot ignore the social and psychological needs of the patient.
Financial resources have become limited, and it is necessary to intensify our services to increase cost effectiveness, to ensure adequate treatment and to prevent quality loss.

As a unique alliance of NGOs and pharmaceutical companies, EURADIA’s mission is to improve the lives of people affected by diabetes both now and in the future, through advocacy of diabetes research in Europe at the highest political and societal levels of influence, and by shaping the allocation of resources for diabetes research in Europe through increased awareness.

Diabetes in its two major forms is a complex, multisystem, polygenic disease that is complicated to treat and pervades all areas of health services. It is common, affects people of every age and is exacerbated by lifestyle factors in many cases. The complications are devastating and can be life-threatening. Better-targeted approaches to research funding as well as a more coordinated response to emerging health needs and research opportunities are necessary. Read more...

The GIMEMA (Italian Group for Haematological Diseases in Adults) began in 1982, with a small group of Italian haematology centres, which realised that only by joining forces and comparing case studies could they achieve results of any significance, which they would not otherwise have been able to do.
It was the start of a journey, one which has brought about unexpected successes. Over the years it has also given rise to the establishment of a network to which almost all Italian haematology centres, and all the various diseases they deal with, belong. Membership requires only two strict undertakings: the rigorous observation of clinical research protocols and the proper collation of results.
