clinical research nurse coordinator

  1. 0
    I will be working as a Clinical Research Nurse Coordinator for a medical group in a few weeks. I would like to prepare for my job. Does anyone know of valuable professional or informational web sources that are applicable to this role? I would particularly like to know if there are any professional U.S. organizations specifically for people with this title. I will not be doing "nursing research", but rather assisting with medical research trials.

    Thanks.

    start learning and reading about the fda, gcp, ich, hhs. there are many regulations and resources available. i would begin with human subject protection, institutional review boards, cder and us code title 21 and the public health service act title 42. attached are some links i hope you will find useful. the physicians and sponsors you work with will appreciate your research and preparation.
    clinicaltrials.gov - information on clinical trials and human research studies: glossary
    public health service act
    guidance for institutional review boards and clinical investigators
    electronic code of federal regulations:
    hhs - office for human research protections
    ich
    the cder handbook

    @ Outcomesfirst: Thank you so much for this handful of information. I have an interview for an independent research company tomorrow, I doing my homework. I hope I'll be able to impress them when they see that I have come prepared.

    http://www.socra.org/ SOCRA is "the other" professional organization. CCRP vs. CRA/CRC.
    CITI is an online training center that many facilities use as a base, followed by site specific training afterwards. https://www.citiprogram.org/Default.asp? CITI used to have a little manual with the Nuremberg Codes, pertinent CFRs, etc.. I'm not sure if they still offer it, but you could contact them, and see about a hardcopy or pdf.

    Resurrecting the dead here, lol!

    Thank you Rob72! I have saved these sites for when I start training. After my interview this morning, the HR director immediately called me back to set up a second interview with the Primary Investigator/Founder of the Clinical Research firm on Monday! I am so excited!

    I'm so glad for allnurses.com! I have received a lot of information and resources from other nurses here, I can't thank this website enough.
