Paediatric research at the Evelina London Children's Hospital is growing and developing. The paediatric clinical research team is expanding in size, scope and clinical facilities. This is an exciting time to join our team and make your mark on paediatric research and help shape its future.
The team supports over 40 studies across a diverse range of specialties; from phase one to phase four clinical trials, medical device evaluations, dietetic interventions and cohort studies and will have the opportunity to act in a lead nurse capacity with your own study portfolio. The team also offers its skills and expertise on a regular basis to the set up and conduct of over 90 additional studies embedded within the wards and clinical services of Evelina London.
These include The Centre for the Developing Brain, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), cardiology and theatres. These roles present the chance to work closely with the clinical teams while expanding your skills across a variety of studies and disciplines.
To support the expanding team and growing portfolio of studies, we are moving into newly refurbished designated paediatric facilities embedded within the multidisciplinary adult Clinical Research Facility (CRF) in St. Thomas' Hospital, the paediatric allergy CRF (Snowy Owl) located within Evelina London and new modern office space. Each team member will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of these spaces and to work with our colleagues, patients, families and the public in the future development of research at Evelina London.
Evelina London is the first children's hospital to be rated as outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The paediatric clinical research team works hard to continue this level of excellence and all teams members will have the opportunity to contribute to this work.
We are currently looking to recruit a Band 6 Children's Clinical Research Nurse to join our dynamic and friendly team to support and lead on the delivery of high quality, holistic care to children and young people participating in research studies.
You will be joining a team which includes clinical research nurses, a clinical research educator, a clinical trial pharmacist, trial coordinators and administrators.
As a Children's Research Nurse you will play a key role in coordinating and delivering a portfolio of research studies spanning a number of specialities in collaboration with other members of the multidisciplinary team. Working across commercial and portfolio adopted studies, you will work with the wider multidisciplinary team including the Principal investigators and study sponsors to deliver a seamless research pathway for patients.
You will be responsible for the holistic nursing care of children and young people and their families on existing clinical trials and contribute to the assessment and management of care pathways for patients participating in clinical studies.
This will involve screening, recruiting, educating and monitoring children and young people in studies as well the collation and documentation of study data. You will be trained to take informed consent for selected studies which do not involve a medicinal product. Previous research experience is not essential as a comprehensive training and development programme is available.
As a skilled communicator, the successful candidate, must also possess excellent interpersonal and problem solving skills and be able to act as an ambassador for promoting research utilisation and best practice.
