Institute contributing to success of SLCRN
Institute contributes to success of South London Comprehensive Research Network (SLCRN).
The Cicely Saunders Institute hosts a Senior Research nurse and a research nurse, who support portfolio studies across the South London Network. For the last five years, their support has enabled South London to remain among the top recruiting networks to Supportive and Palliative Care Studies across the 44 Networks nationally (’08-’09, 4th, 191 patients; ’09-’10, 2nd, 236 patients; ’10-’11, 5th, 186 patients; ’11-’12, joint 3rd, 161 patients). Last year, we were joint 1st recruiters nationally with 182 patients accrued.
The department currently recruits to three national portfolio studies, one randomised interventional trials and two surveys. Three further studies will be open and recruiting soon.
