Moorfields nominated for award in clinical research nursing

Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been nominated for the clinical research nursing award at the Nursing Times Awards 2019.

The Nursing Times Awards celebrate excellence in a wide range of nursing specialties and recognise those making nursing an innovative, patient-focused and inclusive profession.

The clinical research nursing award is a national award given in recognition of initiatives that contribute to achieving the National Institute for Health Research’s strategic priorities, which are outlined in their Clinical Research Nurse Strategy 2017-2020. These priorities include promoting innovation in research delivery practice, improving awareness and understanding of the specialty of clinical research nursing and developing leaders to share best clinical research nursing practice.

The trust was shortlisted based on a project designed and conducted bythe research nursing team. The project involved an intervention which was able to decrease anxiety in both patients and the injector during the eye injection process.

Roxanne Crosby-Nwaobi, head of clinical research nursing at Moorfields, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this award as it highlights the exceptional commitment that our clinical research nursing staff demonstrate every day. We always strive for excellence and this nomination shows that our efforts are helping to create a vibrant clinical research culture, which is essential to finding innovative solutions to health and care needs.”

The winners of the Nursing Times Awards will be announced in October 2019.
