Aims and Objectives: This training will provide an introduction to the new process for the management of Excess Treatment Costs (ETCs) which requires completion of a HRA Schedule of Events Cost Attribution Tool (SoECAT). Those attending will gain an understanding of how to complete a SoECAT for grant applications and the support available, so more suitable to those that support Chief Investigators with setting up studies.

Course Summary:The training will provide an overview of the arrangements for the new process which will include the challenges and benefits of the new system. The training will discuss the requirements of the SoECAT, timescales, and the responsibility of the sponsor as well as the role of the AcoRD Specialist in authorising the SoECAT. The training will also discuss ETCs and go through some examples to illustrate the new process. It is expected that those attending will already have completed our cost attribution training or have some background knowledge of the DHSC AcoRD Guidance to support their learning.
