    Hello fellow colleagues,

    I am inquiring as to the possibility of age related competencies within clinical research established by NIH.  Does such exist?  As one of two trainers in clinical research education, I am challenged with creating age related competiencies in a comprehensive cancer translational research center for outpatient clinic areas, that satisfy Joint commission requirements.  I welcome any/all comments/input.

    Thanks!

    Can you clarify what you mean by age-related competencies.  
    Do you mean patient age?
    I don't see how study coordinator age would be relevant.
    There are some data on recruitment and treatment issues related to age group.  I will look for those and be glad to share them with you.

    You are corrrect in assuming that I was speaking about patient age related competencies.  In the acute care settings, Joint commisssion requires professional orientation to include identification of age related competency skills for patient care.  The Joint commission is starting to address these same items in outpatient clinical areas.  I am trying to find clinical research related "age specific" criteria.  I definitely would welcome any and all information on recruitment, and treatment.  Additionally, are these items in current practice and does any include informed consent?

    I am not aware of age - related competencies in informed consenting; outside of the age constraints by state and the regulations on assent.

    I do have some tips on recruiting study participants based on generation differences.  What is your email- I can send to you.
