HRB CRCI delivers a considerable amount of its activities via working groups made up of appropriately skilled and knowledgeable representatives from its network. Working Groups are in place to deliver on Work Plans across areas such as quality, study feasibility, study start-up, clinical trial contracts and budgets and patient and public involvement. Ultimately the aim of the working groups is the delivery of streamlined transparent processes for clinical research across the institutions. The HRB CRCI Working Groups are as follows:
HRB CRCI Quality Working Group (QWG)
The QWG consists of the Quality and Regulatory Affairs Managers across the centres and chaired by the HRB CRCI QRAM to work on numerous quality elements for the delivery of clinical trials in Ireland. The mission of the QWG is to facilitate cooperation and sharing within the HRB CRCI partnerships with respect to quality, compliance and training matters, such that harmonisation is promoted, duplication is avoided and available resource is maximised. The group developed a Mutual Recognition Policy for the conduct of Clinical Research within the centres and are implementing a peer review programme. Learn more
