There are many challenges to setting up and running clinical trials in the UK, and there is concern that there will not be enough suitably trained clinicians to set up and run the next generation of clinical trials for the coming years.
Representatives from the Network are part of a Panel looking at clinical capacity building, and possible gaps in training the next generation of trialists and Chief Investigators.
Activities to date include:
"Clinical trials methodology:Key issues for successful study design and conduct" July 2014 and
“How to be a good CI” February 2015 and September 2015. New workshop scheduled for October 2016.
