Join the continued discussion from ACRP 2018 session with data from session participants to gain insights regarding skills and competencies of today contrasted to those of tomorrow for a CRA. This session included a 360 perspective and discussion of what makes a great CRA. Through the proposed session discussion and data, it is a conversation to be continued through a deeper dive into a few key areas. These areas include technology skills, regulatory knowledge and RCA competency. During this session, our team will reconvene to discuss and share specific recommendations for how to ensure CRAs, employers of CRAs and research sites engaging with CRAs are best prepared to support and optimize the performance of individuals who are undergoing a shift within a long-established role for our industry.
