Specialist Shortage

The clinical research associate (CRA) or clinical trial monitor is an essential role in drug development. This role is involved across all phases of clinical trials and carries out tasks such as trial site set-up, initiation, monitoring, and close-down. It is known for offering good remuneration packages and flexible working patterns and is a pathway into the clinical trials world.

Running Smarter Trials With Data-Driven Monitoring

PAREXEL

Clinical monitoring remains one of the most important and most costly activities in the clinical research paradigm.  Monitoring provides the operational transparency required by investigators, sponsors, and regulators to make informed decisions about site performance, patient safety, and overall study progress. Yet unlike many clinical trial activities, which have been steadily transformed by technology, the monitoring function itself has changed little.
