At PRA, borders do not create boundaries. PRA’s success is dependent upon our ability to attract and retain a talented team of diverse professionals. Our growing workforce is comprised of over 10,000 employees, spanning 13 time zones across six continents and who speak more than 30 languages – yet operate in unison as one worldwide PRA community.
Working fully outsourced to one of our global client, the Clinical Research Associate (CRA) is ultimately responsible for the successful management of investigator sites throughout the site lifecycle, whilst working in accordance with ICH-GCP guidelines, the study protocol, applicable local and international regulatory requirements and internal Standard Operating Procedures.
With full ownership of investigator sites for assigned studies, the CRA's involvement begins at site feasibility stage, with responsibility for the successful management of the site right through to close-out. In addition to planning and conducting various site visits (feasibility, site selection, interim and close-out) in accordance with the clinical monitoring plan, the CRA fosters effective relationships with investigator site staff to ensure that key clinical metrics are met. This involves establishing innovative ways of increasing site and patient recruitment. When issues do occur, the CRA proactively and promptly implements corrective action plans, and, when applicable, escalates issues to more senior members of the study team. The CRA may also design and deliver training to site staff, when appropriate.
Typical duties for a CRA will likely include preparing for and attending investigator meetings, coordinating the timely shipment and the subsequent proper storage and accountability of clinical supplies and following-up of drug safety issues that have occurred at site. The CRA ensures integrity of clinical data through an ability to sufficiently maintain site tracking records and work diligently to relevant guidelines.
Operating as a key part of a global study team, the CRA plays a fundamental role in our client’s drug development process.
