Two senior nurses employed by our host organisation, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, have been offered places on the National Institute for Health Research’s 70@70 Research Leader Programme, starting in April.
Dr Enrique Castro-Sanchez (honorary consultant nurse in communication and patient engagement) and Dr Anne-Marie Russell (honorary nurse consultant in interstitial lung disease) were both successful in the highly competitive scheme set up to strengthen nursing and midwifery research leadership across England.
70 nurses and midwives have been selected to participate in the 70@70 programme, which aims to improve the visibility of nursing and midwifery in all NIHR activities, to raise the profile of the NIHR and to improve and secure the development of the academic pathway for nurses and midwives.
Each senior nurse or midwife research leader will be funded part-time to promote and support an integrated research culture in their organisation, and to form a national community which will better link the research assets across England.
Enrique and Anne-Marie will work closely with Professor Mary Wells, lead nurse for research at Imperial.
Mary said “Enrique and Anne-Marie are both inspirational clinical academic nurse leaders in their respective fields.”
