EDGE user training for CUH research staff

In March 2017, an announcement was made by the NIHR that instructed each Clinical Research Network (CRN) to obtain a Local Portfolio Management System on behalf of their partner organisations. The system chosen for use at Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) by CRN Eastern was EDGE. EDGE captures the clinical trials data and supports the delivery and maintenance of research at CUH.

Since then, information was sent out to research staff to make sure they had nominated administrators to be trained and start recording study recruitment data on the system. Over 230 users have been trained how to use the cloud-based software platform and staff are now using this system to register their activity for portfolio studies at CUH and upload their accruals on time.

EDGE is not a replacement for the Central Portfolio Management System (CPMS) but it does integrate into CPMS. EDGE will cover recruitment for CUH as a site but only for portfolio studies. Staff will still need to add recruitment data to CPMS for studies where CUH is the lead.

How to know if you need to receive the training?

  • Do you have access to EPIC?
  • Are you in a research team?
  • Are you involved in an active portfolio research study?
  • Will you be responsible to upload recruitment for CUH?

If you have answered “YES” to all of these questions, you will need to attend the EDGE End User Training sessions. Choose the date below you would like attend and complete the form.
