The Clinical Research Nurse within the department of Cancer and Blood Disorders Center functions as a member of the research team (that may consist of Investigators, Clinical Research Coordinators, Data Managers, Regulatory Coordinators, and other Nursing Staff). Clinical responsibilities throughout the conduct of a research study include: providing nursing care to participants and families, monitoring toxicities, assessing clinical response, and communicating research-related information to participants, families, and other members of the research team.
Our CBDC Clinical Research program is critical to making more treatment options available to our patients. Through research, we are able to provide investigational options to our patients when nothing else seems to be working.
If you’ve ever been interested in research (evidence-based treatment from bench to bedside), or want to explore new opportunities in applying your nursing expertise, we would love to have you join our team.#LI-MO1
