Induction & Competency Framework

When you start your new role you may find it confusing, here you will find information regarding the Clinical Research Network Induction and Competency Framework to help you understand the research process and your role within it.


The Induction Manual provides a useful way of introducing you to the training and development opportunities that are available to you. It sets out the key areas of knowledge required and is focused on helping you during your initial period in post.


The competency framework is for all research staff and includes anyone who contributes to the work undertaken by site based clinical research teams. Its purpose is to define the knowledge, skills and attributes of research staff.
