CRP Directory

Clinical Research Practitioners (CRPs) are crucial to delivering clinical research that is transforming treatment in the NHS and the care we receive. CRPs bring a wealth of research knowledge and expertise to research delivery teams, working alongside nurses and others to deliver safe, ethical and high quality clinical research care.

CRP Directory: A Community of Practice

The CRP Directory is a community of Clinical Research Practitioners all playing a part in shaping their professional identity and practice.

CRP is an umbrella title we use for a family of roles that include Clinical Studies Officer, Research Practitioner, Clinical Trials Practitioner and Clinical Trials Officer among others.

The Professional Standards Authority (PSA), the body that sets the standards for accredited registers of people who work in health and social care, has now approved registration for CRPs as part of the Academy for Healthcare Science Accredited Register.
