Clinical Trials Day 2022: Recognizing the Role of Nurses in Advancing Public Health
Clinical Trials Day is an opportunity to highlight the critical part nurses play in research and clinical trials. It is easy to imagine the role of a nurse in the hospital. However, our profession works in many places. Nurses work in hospitals, home care, elder care, primary care, schools, and research roles supporting clinical trials, among many other roles.
Seeing the challenges of illness, the need for behavioural interventions and other conditions of patients cause nurses to come up with innovative ideas for solutions or to join in research to address these challenges. A meaningful way for those innovations to move forward is through clinical research.
