Nurse wins global research accolade

  • 1 Comment

A Southampton university hospital nurse who has displayed “extraordinary dedication” to clinical research will be receive an award later this month at a conference in the United States.

Jennifer Allison, senior nurse manager at the Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility (WTCRF), will be honoured by the International Association of Clinical Research Nurses (IACRN).

She has won the Distinguished Clinical Research Nurse award, which was introduced in 2009 to highlight the contribution of leaders in the sector.

Mrs Allison, who oversees all the WTCRF’s nursing aspects, including adult and paediatric research wards and specialist laboratories, will present a lecture on her career to colleagues from across the world.

Paying tribute to her colleagues, Mrs Allison said she hoped the award would bring “further recognition of the cutting-edge research being performed by our excellent team in Southampton”.

    A comment for mike.

    The perception of good research, is that it does 'require intellect'. So if more nurses become involved in research which then gets adopted and leads to wide-spread and successful clinical changes, that will tend to enhance the 'respect' for nursing.

    Possibly more so, than more nurses having masters degrees on its own, will.

    At least, I suspect that is probably the case.
