Clinical Research Implementation Committee

The Clinical Research Implementation Committee (CRIC) provides a forum for clinical trial and clinical research protocol review and problem solving. The committee is responsible and accountable to open clinical trials and implement operational efficiencies in clinical research. The committee provides discipline-specific expertise in clinical research and the conduct of clinical trials in a manner that reduces cost and increases efficiency and effectiveness. 

The CRIC:

  • Provides real-time, ongoing review of protocols across disciplines to ensure operational efficiencies
  • Provides early access to pending protocols so that hospital-based services can plan for volumes and needs
  • Improves communications to build accountability
  • Recognizes and operationalizes process and/or service improvement opportunities that will reduce or eliminate barriers to participating as experienced or perceived by patients

The CRIC holds meetings twice monthly. For schedule and agenda, log in to CRIC Intranet site.
