ACRP Core Competency Guidelines for Clinical Research Coordinators™
ACRP is pleased to provide the clinical research enterprise with the industry’s first competency guidelines for Clinical Research Coordinators (CRCs)—ACRP Core Competency Guidelines for Clinical Research Coordinators™.
The guidelines can be used by all partners in clinical trial conduct:
CRCs can use this document for self-assessment, competence gap analysis, and creating personalized professional development plans.
Research sites can use the guidelines as a roadmap to support the hiring, assessment, and development of entry-level through senior CRCs.
CROs and sponsors can use the guidelines as competence benchmarks when conducting site assessments.
These guidelines are intended to provide CRCs with the support they need while improving operational quality and trial outcomes for all stakeholders in the clinical research enterprise.
