Clinical Research Practitioners

The Directory for Clinical Research Practitioners has been established to create a Community of Practice as a foundational step in defining the professional identity of this diverse group.

The Directory for Clinical Research Practitioners provides a community space to connect and engage CRPs. This is part of our ambition to enable the continued development of professional identity, standards and regulatory accountability of this diverse group.

Approval was given by the Professional Standards Authority for the AHCS to establish a new part of their accredited register for CRPs. Following piloting and evaluation, the CRP Accredited Register is now open for applications. Depending on the volume of applications, there may be times when we need to close applications for a short time. If this becomes necessary we will inform you through the CRP Directory Communications and this website.
