The integrated Inflammatory Bowel disease (IBD) service within department of gastroenterology is offering an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic nurse to contribute to join our team to further develop research in the IBD service. This will include participation in a number of clinical research projects requiring expertise (with suitable training provided if needed) in multiple aspects of research, ranging from patient visits in outpatients, endoscopy and ward environments to computer-office-based work.

This post is funded by the integrated IBD service and the post holder will carry out NHS-based research in IBD. The post will be within the Gastroenterology department based at the Hull Royal Infirmary, but the work will sometimes require travel to primary care settings and other Trusts in the Yorkshire region. You would be expected to undertake a period of orientation undertaking competencies in relation to clinical practice in IBD clinical research. Prior research experience and exposure to gastrointestinal problems are desirable but not essential as appropriate training and mentorship will be proved.

The post holder will have continuing responsibility for assessing and meeting the needs of patients and their carers in relation to their involvement in research trials. You will ensure that participants are advised on all aspects of their involvement in research trials, including screening, identification, informed consent, data confidentiality and protection, clinical management, drug administration and maintaining patient safety through the reporting of adverse events.

In all respects, the post holder must act within the accordance of the Nursing and Midwifery Code of Conduct, the Research Governance Framework for Health and Social care and the appropriate quality standards for each trial. 

This position requires the post holder to be enthusiastic, innovative and motivated. The post holder must be able work independently, but also work well within a team, communicating and coordinating their work effectively in order to help achieve department objectives.

You will be clinically supervised by Prof S Sebastian, line-managed by the Senior Research Nurse and supported by the other Research and IBD clinical Nurse Specialists and IBD trials coordinators.

Informal discussions and visits are welcomed.
