At the staff event held in June 2017, senior research nurses asked for a session to be arranged on Trial Management.

In this session Reuben Lewis interviews Kirsten Harvey. Kirsten was previously a research coordinator and is now a trial manager. In an interview format, they discuss what the job involves and there will be the opportunity for you to ask questions.


The aim of this event is to share experience and celebrate the achievements you have made through networking. We will be discussing your achievements and sharing examples of how your effective networking has improved your work. 

Together we will learn more about how we can continue to innovate and improve.
