Clinical Research Coordinator 101

Sponsored by the UK CCTS and UK Office of Research Integrity 

This two-day, classroom-based training will be offered October 21-22, 2019 and is designed for clinical research coordinators, clinical research associates, or staff members who function in this capacity.  The multi-session series provides basic information on coordinating clinical trials at the University of Kentucky and is appropriate for entry level positions or those new to the field.  Because this training is designed as an entry level program, it does not provide continuing education credit.

There will be no fee charged to employees of University of Kentucky but if you do register, we ask that you make yourself available for the duration of the two-day course.
 
Registration is open through October 11, 2019.
Limited space is available. Register early to secure your spot. Registration may close prior to October 11, 2019 if all available spots are filled.

Coordinator 101 topics will include:

  • Clinical Research Ethics
  • Review Steps in Initiating a Clinical Trial
  • Informed Consent: Perception, Paper, Process
  • Study and Subject Documentation, Data, and Monitoring
  • Good Clinical Practice Compliance: Putting It All Together
  • Drug Accountability
  • Drug and Device Development
  • Reporting and Managing Adverse Events, Unexpected Problems, Violations, and Modifications
  • Study Closure, Document Retention, and Quality Improvement

PREREQUISITE: In addition to filling out a class registration, all participants must take two online CITI courses, “Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC)” course AND “Good Clinical Practices (GCP)”, prior to the first day of class.
