Become a member of UKTMN

The Network provides members access to a powerful knowledge base and the opportunity to develop expertise, solve problems, share experiences and exchange ideas with a network of trial managers, around the UK.

The Network has a specific remit to support trial managers working in academic-led, non-commercial trials. However, we seek to be an inclusive organisation and therefore do not exclude ‘trial managers’ working on collaborative academic/ industry trials. Each application for membership will be reviewed according to membership criteria.

Definition of Network Member

The UKTMN defines a 'trial manager' as the person who has day-to-day responsibility for the management of operational aspects of a clinical trial or other high quality, large scale study. Core tasks that may be the responsibilities of trial managers are listed below, but we recognise that not all trial managers will necessarily do all of these.

  • Contribute to the development of the trial/study protocol
  • Obtain and maintain relevant trial/study approvals (e.g. ethics, regulatory)
  • Support and train trial/study staff at CTUs and external sites
  • Manage essential trial/study documents and amendments (version control, TMF)
  • Develop, maintain and ensure compliance with trial/study procedures
  • Contribute to trial/study data management and quality assurance activities
  • Monitor and manage trial/study recruitment and retention
  • Monitor trial/study budget
  • Provide regular updates for all stakeholders
  • Contribute to trial/study dissemination activities
