Research Coordinator mentoring/buddy system
Research Coordinators are key members of any research team. CRDO has established an informal mentoring program for new research coordinators. This program draws on the wealth of experience of senior research staff/coordinators we are fortunate to have on the Campus. The mentoring (or “buddying”) process involves regular catch ups – perhaps over a coffee – and allows new staff members to shadow experienced coordinators during key procedures or processes (e.g., observe informed consent, data entry, maintaining a study file) and ask questions about the process of conducting a research project at the Melbourne Children’s.
Research Coordinator Forum
Coordinators regularly attend the Research Coordinator Forums. The forum is composed of staff at the Melbourne Children’s involved in the coordination and day to day running of clinical and public health research. The objective of the forum is to provide education and regular updates on all aspects of running clinical and public health research. The group shares resources, tools and guidance on the day to day running of these studies. All staff working in clinical or public health research are invited to attend. Register for Research Coordinator’s Forum mailing list by emaling firstname.lastname@example.org
There is also a ‘Research Coordinator’ group on Yammer which we encourage you to sign up to, there we will post each of the presentations from the forums as well as other useful information. It also acts as a forum for your own ideas and queries.
