Extra Resource when its Needed Most
Illingworth can provide research nurses to work at clinical sites as well as away off-site. This might be to support the Principal Investigator with patient identification, study procedures and data collection. Our nurses have also previously offered a patient concierge service, supporting patient’s travel arrangements and expense reimbursement, something which can be very stressful for some patients when they are needing to come to site.
Our research nurses are accustomed to fitting within existing team structures to provide an extra resource or alternatively look at driving a project forward at sites without an existing research infrastructure in place. We pride ourselves in maintaining a tight-knit experienced team allowing us to provide high-quality subject/patient care, maximise patient recruitment and ensure the integrity of the trial data.
This service has proved beneficial in instances where off-site research nursing may not be achievable or appropriate, or for sites and patients who do not wish to take up home research nursing.
Specialist Research Nurses
Illingworth recruits experienced nurses who have a background within clinical research. Our nurses are from a variety of clinical backgrounds and a range of therapeutic areas, meaning we are often able to offer a nurse with experiences within a Sponsors' indication. All of our nurses are subject to comprehensive pre-engagement checks which adhere with company policies when recruiting our nurses, to protect both our nurses and patients.
All of our nurses must hold GCP certification and will adhere to Illingworth’s SOP’s and policies (and or site SOPs where applicable) and undertake appropriate study training. All of the above factors mean our nurses are well prepared for any study they are invited to work on – both on and off-site.
