The latest Clinical Research Nursing (CRN) Strategy has been released setting out the direction of travel for 2017 to 2020.
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
