The Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) welcomes Wake Forest Baptist Health / Wake Forest University a Workforce Partner member of the Partners in Workforce Advancement.
Partners in Workforce Advancement is a multi-stakeholder collaborative initiative to grow and expand the diversity of the clinical research workforce, and to set and support standards for workforce competence.
“Organizations aligned with ACRP’s mission are working together to improve clinical trial quality and outcomes for patients by focusing where others have not – workforce planning, development, and assessment. Why? Because in clinical research, people are everything,” says Jim Kremidas, ACRP Executive Director. “We are thankful for the support of Wake Forest and look forward to working together to overcome these critical challenges.”
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 & Diversity the Workforce
- Define, Align & Validate Competence Standards
- Support Sites During COVID-19 Pandemic
“We look forward to a continued collaboration with the ACRP Workforce Partnership and the joint pursuit of goals that shape the future of the clinical research industry. For Wake Forest, this alignment flows primarily through the new, online Master’s in Clinical Research Management (CRM) program which promotes the highest standards of excellence, access, care, and professionalism across all aspects of the industry – with patient-centricity at the heart of it all,” says Dr. Ralph D’Agostino, Jr., PhD, FASA, Program Director of Wake Forest’s Master’s in Clinical Research Management, Professor of Biostatistics and Data Science, Wake Forest School of Medicine; Director, Biostatistics Core, Comprehensive Cancer Care Center. “We look forward to shaping the future of clinical research together.”
