Getting Started


Obtain comprehensive protocol knowledge
Work as a team during development phase





Create a training team
Hold regular development meetings
Determine preliminary modules
Identify presenters
Designate one person from the LT to



Oversee and coordinate the training development plan
Execute and follow-up on tasks
Maintain training system at a Lead Team level
10
Getting Going
Heavy Front-load work
 Develop training plan *

Develop staff training requirements matrix *
 Develop manual of operations & procedures
(MOP)
 Identify & coordinate presenters
 Develop training timeline



great deal of coordination
Develop & maintain training completion log *

for training verification
11
Keep in Mind

Structure should be solid from inception



Training Plan
Training Matrix
Common repository for information
E.g., Livelink
 Access to tools and training resources enables
independence

12

13
Defining Terms

Importance of defining terms in the
training plan

14
Training Plan—Answers what?
Protocol Dictates Training Requirements

The training plan must answer:







Who are you training?
What are the required training topics?
Who is responsible for delivering training?
How/Who is assuring competency?
How is training completion documented?
How/Who is tracking training completion?
How/Who trains incoming staff members?
15

…for training delivery?



Local Training
Protocol Specific Training
Site
Lead Team
…for ensuring staff is properly trained?



PI
SC
QA
Affirms staff qualifications
Coordinates & documents training completion
Monitors & verifies completion
20
Training Plan
Local Training


Sites must be in compliance with their local IRB
requirements
Lead Team or Node may provide acceptable options for
obtaining local training requirements






Human Subjects Protection (HSP)
Good Clinical Practice (GCP)
Universal Precautions, etc.
Training Plan should provide a general description of
each local training requirements module
Training Plan specifies required evidence of completion
RTS: keeper of regulatory evidence (HSP, CV, License)

Coordinator uses it to monitor and
document site staff training
 Serves as evidence of training in the site
Regulatory Binder
 QA monitors can easily review
 Lead Team monitors overall training of staff
 Cost-Analysis studies may use it to analyze
amount and time of training
37
