The UKCRF Network vision is to develop, share and implement excellence in CRF operations to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of studies.
The Network has established individual themes to deliver their corresponding strategic objectives:
- Theme 1: Achieving CRF Operational Excellence to deliver experimental medicine studies;
- Theme 2: Facilitating coordination and accelerated delivery of trials through CRFs;
- Theme 3: Developing and sharing best practice/tools for staff education, training and development;
- Theme 4: Delivering collaborative and coordinated public involvement, engagement and participation activities to show case experimental medicine.
A Theme Lead has been appointed to manage each individual theme and is responsible for the successful delivery of theme projects. They are supported by a Deputy Theme Lead and Theme Groups made up of CRF experts from relevant research areas. Theme Groups develop guidelines and tools to support best practice in day-to-day operations and workforce development at CRFs. A list of available tools is shown below.

Tools and Guidance
The UKCRF Network Theme Groups have worked together to develop a series of tools such as guidance, training materials, spreadsheets and check lists to support CRF operational excellence and workforce development.
The tools are available to download from our CRF information Portal (for access to the Portal complete the form by clicking here).
