Clinical Research Staff Quarterly Training: May 2021

The May Clinical Research Staff Quarterly Training will focus on hot topics in research compliance.

Tufts Medical Center and Tufts CTSI Professional Education are excited to announce the re-launch of the Clinical Research Staff Quarterly Training series. The first training in the new series will focus on topics in research compliance specific to Tufts Medical Center.

Featured Topics

Clinical Research Pre-Registration

The Clinical Research Pre-Registration (Pre-Reg) form is used for patients coming into the hospital for inpatient or outpatient study visits that are scheduled for ancillary care. You will learn how to complete a Clinical Research Pre-Registration form and the importance of this information as it relates to research billing compliance.

Greenphire Clincard

Greenphire Clincard system is the preferred method for providing compensation or reimbursement to subjects in clinical research studies. We will discuss how to get studies added to Clincard, why the system is the most compliant way to pay research subjects, FAQs around using the system and important things to consider when requesting an alternative method.

Research Third Party Vendor Onboarding and Risk Assessment

Wellforce has recently rolled out a new Third Party Risk Management (TPRM) process including a new TPRM Vendor Onboarding Form. We will discuss when this form should be completed as part of study start-up and how to best complete it as it relates to research.

Mentor Training for Junior and Senior Faculty

Want to be a more effective research mentor?

Join us in May 2021 for one of two case-based training opportunities for faculty members with mentees preparing for research careers in biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences.

If you are responsible for mentoring Tufts CTSI’s graduate education program’s fellows (TL1) and scholars (KL2), this is a great opportunity to complete the mentor training recommended every other year.

Meet peers and faculty members with expertise in mentoring and career development, and advance your skills in:

  • Goal-setting and alignment
  • Feedback (giving and receiving)
  • Diversity and unconscious bias
  • Relational boundaries
  • Team science.

Requirements for the training:

  • Complete online pre-work (approximately 1-2 hours) on the Tufts CTSI I LEARN platform prior to attending the live session.
  • Participate actively during the live session (2 hours) and share mentoring experiences.
  • Answer follow-up surveys about the outcomes and impact of this training on your mentees. 

After completing one of these sessions, you should be able to:

  • Describe the difference between advising and mentoring.
  • Explain the importance of communication in the mentor/mentee relationship.
  • Discuss common mentoring challenges and possible solutions.
  • Identify mentoring tools and resources that you can use with your mentees.
