Midwife clinical researchers encouraged to complete UK and Ireland national census

on 27 August 2021

A census has been launched to find out how many nurses and midwifes are involved with clinical research, and to discover if there are any clinical research “gaps”.

The survey, which is the first of its kind, has been launched by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) 70@70 Senior Nurse and Midwife Leaders Programme.

Registered nurses and midwives working in either full-time or part-time clinical research roles in the UK or the Republic of Ireland are being welcomed to take part in the study.

The survey is only aimed at clinical research nurses and midwives who support patients taking part in research developed by others. Is respondents are in a dual role, they should record their clinical research nurse/midwife hours.

The Department of Health and Social Care are the data controller for the information obtained in the survey.
