Aim of the UKTMN

The Network aims to facilitate the development of a well-trained, highly motivated, effective workforce of trial managers within the UK health care system who will make an important contribution to the efficient delivery of high quality clinical trials. It aims to provide a forum which will promote best practice in effective management and delivery of clinical trials, and provide a focus for the professional accreditation of the competencies required to effectively manage a clinical trial and thereby developing a career pathway for trial managers. UKTMN also seeks to promote a shared understanding of the role and value of effective trial management within clinical research.

The UKTMN is a vibrant hub of UK Trial Managers working together, sharing knowledge and experience, towards the efficient delivery of clinical trials and well-designed studies.

The UKTMN is hosted by the Nottingham Clinical Trials Unit, University of Nottingham.
