- — Richard Clark (@clarkrm1010)Tue, Jan 09 2018 19:09:39@BACCNUK I think it is essential to have an ICU background. If you take into account studies like REST and Breathe it would be extremely difficult to understand the situation and have the competence and confidence to implement the intervention. A good CRN - flexible, consientious, patient

- — Richard Clark (@clarkrm1010)Tue, Jan 09 2018 19:13:45@BACCNUK We like other areas cover the ED, so we have an ED research nurse that supports the ICU studies. She has been with us for only 6 months so in the future I will hopefully be proven wrong.
- — Richard Clark (@clarkrm1010)Tue, Jan 09 2018 19:21:06@BACCNUK This might help with my next job advert...You will have the responsibility of having your own studies with the support of the team. You will have opportunities to learn and view things in a different way, challenging some of the views you may already have - which is a great

- — Compelling Reads (@Compellingreads)Tue, Jan 09 2018 19:23:09@BACCNUK The research nurse is new to my department within the last 6 months or so. I know ours incorporates ED and anaesthetics
- — Richard Clark (@clarkrm1010)Tue, Jan 09 2018 19:24:27@BACCNUK The same here. We work in an acute area which demands flexibility, I wouldn't want a nurse to come into research for the '9-5'.
- — ACET Research Team (@ACETResearch)Tue, Jan 09 2018 19:24:41@BACCNUK Good relationship with patient and families, able to follow them through to beyond discharge. Develop excellent transferable skills.. Assessment, organisational, time management, build good relationship with mdt, see big picture. Love it
- — ACET Research Team (@ACETResearch)Tue, Jan 09 2018 19:28:46@BACCNUK We also collaborate with ED and Anaesthetic, lots of common challenges. In relation to previous conversation, our brilliant ED nurses support Crit care studies. However good delivery very much based in embedding with clinical team so imo unit staff will have advantage
- — BACCN (@BACCNUK)Tue, Jan 09 2018 19:29:39My second question to #icuresearch twitter group is: “some people might say- how do we justify the cost of research nurses, when we often pay huge fees to agency nurses to keep our icu beds staffed?”
- — ACET Research Team (@ACETResearch)Tue, Jan 09 2018 19:31:20@BACCNUK 9-5 service definitely doesn't work in ICU, but funding out of hours ongoing problem not recognized by research infrastructure. We cover 8-8 with weekend on call, but only doable with biggish team
