ACRC's Glossary & Common Terminology collates definitions of commonly used clinical research acronyms and terms from Health Canada, TCPS2, FDA and other sources. It also includes Alberta-specific clinical and health research-related terminology which helps us all to speak the same language. The document is co-developed with the help of the Glossary and Common Terminology Working Group.

What's new in Version 5.0?

  • Addition of 47 new terms and 20 associated acronyms
  • In this version, we looked to include terms and acronyms that relate to digitally-enabled technologies, processes and platforms aligning to Health Canada’s Clinical Trial Modernization and the ACRC Strategic Plan III (to be released).
  • Examples of new terms include Adaptive Platform Trials (APT), Biometric Monitoring Technologies (BioMeTs), Electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD) and Platform Trials.
