Delegation of Responsibilities in a Clinical Research Study

Sponsored by the MGH Division of Clinical Research and the MGH Clinical Research Center

Speaker: Kathy Hall, MS, APC-BC, NE-BC, Nursing Director, MGH Clinical Research Center

As part of a research study an investigator may decide to delegate certain tasks to a member of the study team, who is trained to perform such tasks. Please join Kathy Hall as she discusses the responsibilities that can and cannot be delegated to study staff. Kathy will discuss the following topics:

• What tasks can be delegated to a clinical research assistant or coordinator?
• What tasks can be performed by a clinical research nurse or nurse practitioner?
• What study-related activities can only be performed by an investigator?
• What to do if you have been asked to perform a task you are not qualified to perform.

Registration is required. Please contact dcredu@partners.org with any questions.
