About RA

clinical research

This online clinical research course focus on preclinical and clinical trial involves in drug discovery to commercialization process. The course provides orientation to practical understanding in the preclinical and clinical trial process. This course will help to learn how to manage each preclinical and clinical development stages effectively. Further, course provide extensive training on clinical trial data management which is key for the approval of the drug. Fourthly, training includes clinical trial strategic planning process. Lastly, this online training focuses on the clinical research outsourcing market. How to handle CRO effectively.

Objective of the course

The objective of this course is to impart knowledge and understanding with an opportunity to acquire and develop the expertise necessary for effective clinical research. The program is designed to meet the high demand for trained personnel for human clinical trials. The program enable you to master practical aspects of clinical trial conduct and management including clinical trial phases and design, planning, implementation, data analysis, regulatory and procedural guidelines and ethical considerations.

This clinical research training course is designed to challenge students to apply what they have learned through the use of interactive exercises, reflection questions. Hence this training provides real life requirement for clinical trials, BA / BE Study.

The course can be completed at any pace, allowing the user to stop and start at their leisure.

Career in Clinical Research

Clinical research is a field that deals with the study & analysis of health & illness in Humans. It is the means through which scientists analyze how to prevent, diagnose and treat illness. Clinical research describes many different elements of scientific investigation. It involves human participants and helps translate basic research into new treatments and information to beneficial for patients.

Clinical Trials or Clinical Studies involves human volunteers. These type of research or experimental studies enables various groups of researchers and investigators to search for new and more effective ways to understand, discover, regulate as well as deal with different types of human disorders/ diseases/ abnormalities. In other words, we can say that these trials are the best way to get answers to any difficult scientific / health-related queries.

Goals of Clinical Research

All clinical trials should meet certain goals to fulfill their design or use of conduct. It must :

  • Enhance therapeutic understanding
  • Be implemented by adroit persons,
  • Take all important steps/actions to protect those who accommodate themselves to research,
  • Acquire regulatory acceptance and take all the obligatory legal and ethical steps.
  • Gather the assent of those involved in research

Role and Responsibility of Clinical Research Associate

A clinical research associate (CRA) plays an important role managing this process and organizing all the information. This career would be an excellent choice for someone looking for a documentation job with a difference.

The Role of CRA

The role of a clinical research associate in simple terms is to coordinate the collection, distribution and storage of data obtained during clinical trials. The execution of this role, however, involves quite a few responsibilities.

  • Develop and write clinical trial protocols
  • Develop forms and templates for data collection
  • Coordinate with Ethics committee
  • Set up trial sites, ensure trials are conducted as per procedures and regulations
  • Educate patients, doctors and other personnel about the trial
  • Monitor the conduct of trials at various sites and review data for regulatory submissions
  • Prepare reports, presentations and manuscripts for publications

The responsibilities of a CRA are not limited to one department, location or site. Being a CRA involves working with a large number of different people and in different setups.

CRAs can find employment within Clinical Research Organizations (CRO), pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and occasionally in hospitals.

Clinical Research Organization (CRO)

A Contract Research Organisation, also called Clinical Research Organization (CRO) is a service organization that provides support to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries in the form of outsourced pharmaceutical research services (for both drugs and medical devices).
