Monday, 16 October 2017 14:09

A NIHR Clinical Research Network strategy setting out the direction of travel for Clinical Research Nurses from 2017 to 2020 was released on 4 October 2017. The CRN strategy will ensure the CRN workforce meet the expectations of patients in the NHS and are seen as visible leaders. The strategy reflects the NIHR mission to “provide a health research system in which the NHS supports outstanding individuals working in world class facilities, conducting leading edge research focused on the needs of patients and the public”.

    The strategy sets out four strategic goals:
  • Creating a clinical research culture that is patient and public focused
  • Promoting innovation in research delivery practice to include the use of digital technologies to improve data quality and enable novel ways of using resources
  • Improving awareness and understanding of the specialty of clinical research nursing and its contribution and impact
  • Developing leaders to share best clinical research nursing practice locally, nationally and internationally
  • For more information and to view the strategy, visit the NIHR website.

    Research Nurses give an insight into their role

    Monday, 16 October 2017 10:23

    The NIHR CRN celebrated International Nurses Day on 12th May with a national event just for Clinical Research Nurses. Research Nurses provided an insight into their role and what they think the future of research nursing looks like in some short interviews available to view online. Held in London, the event was entitled: "Contributing to new futures: Clinical Research Nurses, voices that lead". Director of Nursing, Learning and Organisational Development, Dr Susan Hamer, and Head of Workforce and Learning, Dr Fiona O'Neil, led the day attended by NIHR Clinical Research Nurses. The focus of the event was on research nurses being leaders, a key theme for some of the presentations and poster sessions from the research nurses themselves.

    To find out more about the event and view interviews with the Research Nurses, visit the NIHR website.
