We are delighted to have you join the MOVE Team. As the Research Coordinator at a hospital, you will interact with several people at your hospital including the Education Coordinator, the Physician Lead, possibly a Project Lead, and other people who are interested in working on the project. Outside of your hospital, you will work closely with your MOVE Coach. The MOVE Coach is there to help make sure the evaluation and implementation of the intervention go smoothly, so you will touch base with your Coach bi-weekly.  If you ever have questions or concerns, you can talk to your MOVE Coach.

Your role on the project is to collect and enter audit data, chart review data, and data from decision support throughout the entire project (before the intervention, during the intervention, and after the intervention). Additionally, you, along with the Education Coordinator are responsible for coordinating the roll out of the intervention and organize your MOVE Implementation team to assist in other project responsibilities.

There are many roles and responsibilities associated with being a Research Coordinator. Below you will find a copy of the Research Coordinator Guide and other helpful documents that will help you fulfill your roles and responsibilities as the Research Coordinator for your hospital.

The following checklist allows you to stay on top of your tasks. Use this checklist to keep track of your roles and responsibilities during each of the phases. You may print or modify this checklist to suit your needs and to adapt it to site-specific activities.
