The Role of the Clinical Research Nurse in Inclusion, Equity, and Justice
Quincy Byrdsong, Ed.D, CIP, CCRP
Vice President Provost for Health Affairs, Lipscomb University
While clinical investigators are ultimately responsible for the conduct of research projects involving human subjects, the research nurse is the first and primary point of contact for many individuals who heroically volunteer themselves to be subject to human experimentation. They are typically the most well-versed in the study on a day-to-day basis. However, the most important roles the research nurse plays are serving as subject advocate, subject champion, subject support system, and even, subject protector. The concepts of who is included, how subjects are treated, and the interaction between those in authority and the subjects themselves are all part of what the research nurse has to consider. This presentation will look at the role of the research nurse in the areas of inclusion, equity, and justice and strategies which will ensure research is conducted in the most excellent way.
