Title : Fundamentals of clinical trials for Nurses


The role of nurses/midwives in clinical trials research is undergoing a remarkable transformation from being a data collector for medical research to the recognition of the nurse/midwife as an essential member of the research team with a more complicated role. Clinical trials are an important part of advancing patient care, and nurses/midwives who coordinate clinical trials require specialized cognitive competencies. This interactive workshop will provide nurses/ midwives with the fundamental information necessary to be successful as a clinical trials nurse/midwife and help them to apply their new knowledge to manage clinical trials and care for patients on them. Purpose: by the end of this workshop, the participants (nurses and midwives) will be able to identify the necessary information and processes needed to coordinate clinical trials by achieving at least 75% on the post-test.

Methods: Target Audience: This workshop is designed to meet the educational needs of nurses/midwives with less than two years of experience in a research role. This course may provide insight into the role of research/ clinical trials nurse/midwife for those considering a position in research.

• Expected number of participants: maximum 20 attendees

• Required time: less than 3 hours

• Support requirements: Audio/Visual, chart, clinical trials file samples

• Pre-test and post-test will be done to evaluate the progress

Expected outcomes:

• Describe and analyze the components of a clinical research study.

• Describe the main ethical and legal principles that govern clinical trials.

• Outline steps the research nurse/midwife can take to support the integrity while implementing a clinical trial.
