As you prepare to conduct a clinical research study at Massachusetts General Hospital, it is important to identify the specific skills needed in your research team, and to identify personnel to fill those roles.
As you prepare to conduct a clinical research study, it is important to identify the personnel that you will need to complete the tasks detailed in your protocol.
Here are some key questions to consider:
Once you have determined the scope of the work required for your project and outlined the study staff’s roles and responsibilities, this information can be entered into the protocol’s Regulatory Binder delegation of responsibility log.
In addition to study staff protocol-specific roles and responsibilities, principal investigators are ultimately responsible for managing their study funds. You must determine who on your study team or your department’s administrative staff will monitor your study funds to assure that expenses charged to the fund are correct and who will be responsible for correcting errors.
