Training for clinical researchers

The UK policy framework for health and social care research requires that each member of the research team, including those at collaborating sites, is qualified by education, training and experience to discharge their role in the study, and that their qualifications are documented. The chief investigator is responsible for making sure all staff are appropriately trained for their role.
