The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) highlighted the JTF on the DIAMOND Portal, a portal that provides access to training materials for clinical research professionals and others on the research team. DIAMOND stands for Development, Implementation, and Assessment of Novel Training in Domain-based Competencies.
The DIAMOND Portal, brings together trainings in the eight competency domains of the JTF Framework, ranging from the specifics of running trials to more general topics, such as leadership and professionalism. The portal also includes assessments that study teams can use to assess the training of staff members. In addition, research professionals can boost their careers by maintaining an electronic portfolio of their training materials through DIAMOND. While the initiative began as a way to share materials developed at the CTSA Program hubs, now additional resources can be uploaded to the portal.
