Congratulations to Nikita Bedi, Lead CRC with the Head and Neck CRG. She is taking on the leadership for The Onboarding Teachers’ Accreditation Project (TOTAP), an educational effort to prepare and grant credentials to Lead CRCs to teach clinical onboarding classes to CCTO new hires. Risa Jiron, Radiology manager, is the new senior mentor for the Project and a liaison to facilitate communication with upper management.
TOTAP is embedded in a larger initiative, launched in October of 2020 that is using REDCap to centralize the scheduling of all CCTO onboarding classes. That program also holds surveys to capture feedback on quarterly outcomes. The REDCap database was framed by Melanie Ashland, CRC2 in Early Drug Development (EDD) CRG. The CCTO administrative team has been a key partner in the larger onboarding initiative. Tiffany Li is leading the administrative team for this work. Amanda Sullivan is the senior mentor.
The success of this dual initiative has been a broad team approach, using homegrown talent, for ongoing quality improvement.
