    Study Intensity Tool for Clinical Research

    Wednesday, April 24, 2019
    1:00 – 2:00 PM ET

    A workforce planning tool for clinical researchers adapted from US clinical research centers has helped staff in the UK with widely accepted metrics that provide recognized, valuable data and evidence. This session explores the UK Clinical Research Facilities Network (UKCRFN) Study Intensity tool (SIT) as a research specific workforce planning tool which originated in the general clinical research centers of the USA. With permission it has been adapted and developed for use in the UK. Its development has been driven by the UKCRFN Intensity Working Group (IWG). The wide dissemination and recognition of the metrics produced by the tool means that it is widely accepted as a measure of workforce planning within a research setting. This information is already utilized by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded Clinical Research Facilities in reporting annual metrics and therefore supports a consistent national approach to metrics reporting. It has also provided supporting evidence in the justification for an increase in resources when presenting business cases for additional research staff across a variety of research infrastructures.
