This impact comes after learning and mastering several specialized skills during your program that will help you understand the process of clinical research, help to improve clinical trial procedures and help you accurately monitor projects. Continue reading to discover what some of these specialized skills are and how they apply to a clinical research role.

1. Data Collection and Analysis for Clinical Research Training

Data collection and analysis involves recording various data on the participants, including demographics, medical history, health status, and other relevant details that may impact the study. The FDA Standardized Study Data guidance offers clinical research training graduates a helpful resource for collecting and presenting data. Analysis refers to the investigation of the data to find any trends or patterns that may reveal more information about the success of the research. At NAI, you will gain experience in data collection and analysis through courses on Clinical Data Management and Data Integrity and Design and Interpretation of Clinical Trials, Introduction to Biostatistics.

Data collection is a skill you will practice during your clinical research program.

2. Documentation Skills for Several Processes

Documentation skills are an essential component of any clinical research role, where the recording of important information is paramount for successful research, studies, and trials. Documentation may refer to collected data, research processes used, protocol changes, errors, and more. The timely documentation of these variables is important to ensure the information is accessible later in time should the need to revisit the situation arise. Through courses on technical and scientific writing, as well as an introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP), you will become familiar and confident with your documentation skills and what is required in different settings.

Documentation can include notes on data, processes, protocols, errors, trends, and more.

3. Experience with Scientific Research Protocols

Scientific research is a tool that helps professionals better understand and interpret clinical research and data. During your clinical research courses, you will want to have a fundamental understanding of life sciences and how the research at hand may affect or be affected by the variables involved. As you pursue clinical research, you’ll become familiar with staying up to date with current scientific research, including new findings, updated protocols, effective research techniques, and more. In general, staying up to date is necessary for such an innovative field, and many professionals subscribe to various scholarly journals to stay in the loop and continue their learning.

4. Using Ethical Approaches

Clinical researchers are trusted to maintain ethical and efficient clinical practice throughout all stages of any clinical trial. An ethical grasp of the context of each study you are involved in will help you maintain an ethical approach, especially when study participants are being tested. Context is key to helping you understand the impact of these trials on the lives and statehoods of these participants. Steps you can take to ensure ethical approaches are used include prioritizing confidentiality and respecting the participants’ cultures and choices. Participants should receive proper care during the study, and their records must be kept safe and secure. As you move through your clinical research program and gain experience with creating, monitoring, and analyzing clinical trials, you will have a good grasp on what it takes to use an ethical approach.
