Education and Training Programme

Research Nurse Training

All our research staff undertakes a thorough and robust induction and training package upon arrival with us, and personal development and refreshers training is encouraged and monitored by regular 1:1s and appraisals.  Our workforce is always up to date with all mandatory and GCP training.

This is delivered by a rolling training package delivered by local facilitators in the following courses:

  • NIHR GCP training
  • Consent in clinical trials
  • Cancer Researchers Introductory Course (CRIC)

The aim is for 3 Introductions to GCP, 3 refreshers and 2 consent courses a year as a minimum.  These are attended by both internal and external staff.
