Partners in Workforce Advancement members—who now include more than 25 sponsors, CROs, investigator sites, academic institutions, regulatory agencies, and more—provide strategic direction and support for initiatives to:
- Grow and Diversify the Workforce
- Define, Align and Validate Competency Standards for Research Roles
- Support Sites During COVID-19 Pandemic and beyond
“Javara is committed to advancing the clinical research work force through standardization of the Clinical Trial Navigator (CTN) role as the cornerstone of clinical trials,” said Susan Donahue, Senior Director, Operational Quality at Javara. “We are proud to support ACRP in its goal to grow and diversify the clinical research workforce.”
