The Joint Task Force for Clinical Trial Competency has identified the skills required for safe, ethical, and high-quality clinical research. We are committed to providing researchers worldwide with guidance and tools to ensure the professional competency of all members of the research team.
The Joint Task Force for Clinical Trial Competency has developed the Harmonized Core Competency Framework and other resources to provide the clinical research community with practical and comprehensive guidance to develop a capable workforce and conduct high-quality clinical research.
We are hard at work on evolving the Harmonized Core Competency Framework to meet the needs of clinical researchers. We are also working to disseminate our work across the globe at conferences and in publications.
"For the first time, a universally applicable, globally relevant framework exists that identifies the competency domains and the associated cognitive skills necessary to conduct a high-quality, ethical, and safe clinical trial."
– JOINT TASK FORCE FOR CLINICAL TRIAL COMPETENCY (2014)
