Clinical Research Practitioners

The NIHR 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.

Clinical Research Practitioners (CRPs) work in research delivery roles that involve direct contact with patients and activities in clinical environments and other health and social care settings. The CRP role has grown and developed in response to the changing landscape and continuing expansion of clinical research activity.  The skills and expertise that CRPs bring to the delivery of safe, ethical and high-quality clinical research care are a vital resource within multi-disciplinary teams.

The NIHR Directory for Clinical Research Practitioners sits within the regulatory framework, administrative functions and oversight of the Academy for Healthcare Science (AHCS).
