This session will describe three important steps to assure RC competency in study procedures at the beginning of a trial: risk assessment, development of a competency based training program, and implementation of that program. Participants will gain an understanding of how to conduct a risk assessment for a clinical trial. They will also learn how to develop and implement this type of program for their studies in order to help increase study procedure awareness and CRC competence. Take-aways will include a training checklist template that can be applied to clinical trial study start-up and a toolkit describing our program.
