The aims of the Training & Competency Framework Sub-group is to address the lack of recognition of trial management as a profession and the lack of specialised training for trial managers to progress their careers.
The UKTMN Training and Competency Framework Group are responsible for:
- Ensuring trial management professionals have access to relevant training
- Developing, reviewing and updating the UKTMN Competency Framework for Trial Management
The skills and expertise of the trial manager are pivotal in the successful completion of a trial and the need to support and train these key people is well recognised. It was acknowledged by UK funding bodies in 1998 when the UKTMN began, that more formal training for those responsible for running trials would maximise their success and ultimately increase the knowledge base that influences health care management decisions. The need for formal training remains and the UKTMN aims to provide appropriate training and career development opportunities for trial management professionals in the UK.
The UKTMN have successfully run training events exclusively for members for many years in a multitude of areas, and we continue to aim to fill the gaps in training for trial managers.
A list of members of the UKTMN Training and Competency Framework group can be found in the Executive Group Terms of Reference.
