To support the urology research trials we are fundraising for a Research Nurse at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford.
This role will play a vital role in delivering clinical research, and ultimately improving patient care and treatment pathways.
Research nurses provide a huge amount of additional support to the patient and their family at a very difficult time and help them to understand their treatment options.
Research is essential
It is the only evidence-based method of deciding whether a new approach to treatment or care is better than the current standard, and is essential to diagnose, treat, prevent, and cure disease.
A Research Nurse provides care and treatment for patients involved in medical studies. They are responsible for monitoring the health and safety of patients under strict conditions of regulatory oversight, and for collecting and interpreting data for research purposes.
Some of the trials currently supported by research nurses in Oxford include: the TRANSLATE, PART, PROMOTE & FINESSE Trials as well as the QUANTUM Biobank. Each of these Oxford-led endeavours involve collaborators from around the UK and seek to deliver high-level evidence on surgical cancer care to the international community
