The 2017 Nursing Times Awards have released the shortlist of nominations for the Clinical Research Nurse category sponsored by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical research Network (CRN).
The Nursing Times Awards are in their 27th year, and are the most respected and relevant awards in the nursing and healthcare sector and offer much-deserved recognition for the innovative and excellent care that nurses at all levels provide across the UK. Representing true excellence in nursing and patient care, The Nursing Times Awards brings together the best of the industry for a glittering evening of recognition, celebration and networking.
This year’s awards sees over 20 categories including the Clinical Research Nursing category, which opened for nominations earlier this year. The nominations have since been analysed and a shortlist for the Clinical Research Nursing Category can now be viewed here.
Clinical Research Nurses provide and deliver high quality patient care as well as dealing with data collection, follow-ups, patient groups and industry, but most importantly of all they develop and build multi-disciplinary teams that deliver research. Last years Clinical Research Nursing award was scooped by the Clinical Research Nursing Team from University Hospitals of North Midlands. The winning team were recognised for developing an Acute Research Team which provides opportunities to recruit to stroke and A&E clinical trials 24 hours a day.
Dr Susan Hamer, NIHR CRN Director of Nursing, Learning and Organisational Development is excited about this years awards, and applauds those who feature in the Clinical Research Nursing shortlist:
"Once again the NT awards have shone a light on excellent examples of practice in clinical research nursing. I know that all the nurses shortlisted will use this recognition as an opportunity to share their innovative practice with nursing colleagues and to promote the importance of clinical research to develop high quality care. They will certainly have a busy and exciting few weeks."
The winners of each of the 22 award categories for the 2017 Nursing Times Awards will be announced at a prestigious award ceremony taking place on 2 November 2017 in London.
Shortlisted organisations will now complete presentations and interviews to a specific judging panel made up of senior and influential figures from the health sector.
