There are many things to consider when implementing a clinical research training program for your staff.
While there are no standard requirements for training, guidelines outlined in the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) and the US Code of Federal Regulations state that all monitors should be appropriately trained and have the scientific and/or clinical knowledge to monitor the trial adequately. Your team likely has individuals in several locations with a wide range of experience, which can make it difficult to find something that works for everyone.
If you're struggling to find the right clinical research training programs and make them easily accessible to your team, IMARC can help.
