Research Champion Role
One of the ways we are embedding research within our Trust has been done through our Research Champion Roles. This role was set up so more patients offered research by promoting and raising research awareness through the introduction of the Research Champion role and Research Cafes.

The overall aim is to further develop a resilient and highly skilled workforce to open research opportunities to everyone.
Rose Kirk, Clinical Educator
As a Research Sister I am passionate about spreading the word of research. My role is crucial in making positive changes to patient care, care delivery, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment services. I truly love that my job will make a huge difference to patients’ lives.
In my research awareness role, I will be raising awareness of what research is, how it can benefit our patients locally and how to get involved. My role will be to engage with nurses across the Trust to ensure that research is part of their role. This will increase opportunities for patients to participate in research, increasing the quality and capability of healthcare provision locally and nationally.
