This is a web-based system that houses a database of statisticians working in or affiliated to UKCRC registered Clinical Trials Units. The aim of the system is to:
- Enable identification of statisticians with experience in clinical trials as oversight committee members
- Support development of less experienced statisticians by providing training and mentorship opportunities as oversight committee observers
Access to the system is by username and password. The database may be searched for statisticians with particular interests or experience and is updated periodically.
A nominated individual from each UK-CRC registered clinical trials unit is able to access the database to add and remove details of statisticians from their unit (or affiliated members), and keep the information up to date.
The same login details are used to search the database.
Database development was funded by a grant from the MRC funded Hub for Trials Methodology Research network and is an output of the UKCRC Registered CTU Statisticians Operational Group.
