Governance and Management



In light of the growing number of clinical studies conducted at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and  hospitals/ clinics of New Territories East Cluster (NTEC) of Hospital Authority (HA) to ensure compliance with international standards, the Faculty of Medicine of CUHK and Prince of Wales Hospital (PWH) of NTEC recognizes the need to strengthen its governance and put in place a management structure to ensure patient safety and integrity of clinical research.

In January 2013, mandated by the Dean of the CUHK Faculty of Medicine and the Cluster Chief Executive of the NTEC, the Joint CUHK-NTEC Clinical Research Management Committee (CRMC) was established to meet the regulatory and safety requirements for clinical research.

Under this joint committee, the Joint CUHK-NTEC Clinical Research Management Office (CRMO) was established in June 2013 to implement clinical research policies set by CRMC and coordinate activities to improve the safety of research subjects, the integrity of research conduct and the compliance of regulatory requirements by both Institutions.

To achieve these objectives, the CRMO works closely with all relevant clinical departments at the PWH or other 6 hospitals/ 10 General Out-patient Clinics in NTEC, including the CUHK Phase 1 Clinical Trial Centre (P1CTC).
