The Clinical Trials Monitor, an ``orchestrator`` –  article in Viata Medicala Magazine

Dr Cristina Florescu Moraid - AVANTYO CEO, talks about the complexity of knowledge and responsibilities that make the monitor look like an orchestrator who puts the actors of the clinical trial to “sing” for the best “music”. She also points out that this speciality is almost “unknown” to medical science graduates even if clinical trials and monitoring are very important nowadays.

A monitor / Clinical Research Associate must have an academic degree in biomedical sciences and to know how to apply the good clinical practices and regulations, ICH GCP.

Working in clinical trial monitoring also requires knowledge of project management, data processing and correlation, communication. A detailed list of responsibilities can be found in the article.

As in Romania, there are no university or post-graduate training modules for CRA, as it happens in more developed countries, Romanian monitors must periodically participate in training to keep up to date with the news.

The author concludes by emphasizing the importance of clinical trials in testing new molecules and of training the specialists in this field, going as far as proposing the recognition of the profession/speciality of the clinical trial monitor in Romania.

The article was published on the 1st of May 2020, in Viata Medicala magazine no. 17, in the “Clinical Trials Pill / Pastila de studii Clinice" series, section “Essential / Esential”, on page 13. See here the article in Romanian.
