Clinical Research Development Ireland Resources
Clinical Research Development Ireland (CRDI) is a not-for-profit research partnership comprising NUI Galway, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork and University College Dublin, their medical schools, associated academic hospitals and clinical research facilities, with the objective of accelerating the translation of biomedical research into improved diagnostics, therapies and devices for patients. CRDI is a funded partner in CÚRAM.
CRDI is coordinating expertise across our partner academic institutions and beyond to develop and deliver resources for research training.
Development of one such resource, e-Learning, is a current priority area for CRDI. We are working with our academic research community, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, the Health Products Regulatory Authority, the National Standards Authority of Ireland and patients to develop online/blended education modules and information resources. A multimedia approach incorporates filmed presenters with dynamic graphics, case studies, interviews, resources and quizzes.
These and other training resources are integrated into the CÚRAM Education and Training programme by a Steering Committee comprising medical device researchers from academia and industry, clinician scientists, teaching and learning leads, and clinical trials methodology experts.
