Clinical trial nurses help increase patient enrollment and retention rates by bringing the clinical trial to the patient. The convenience and care they provide through in-home clinical visits benefit most patients, including pediatric patients, those who are too sick to travel, or those requiring a more flexible schedule. Studies utilizing clinical trial nurses are more accessible, more convenient, and therefore much more patient centric.
National Nurses Week
Home Health Nurses provide quality care and education that increases patient confidence. UBC provides access to one of the largest national networks of credentialed healthcare professionals, offering clinical expertise in a wide variety of administration methods and disease states.
Today, brand sales representatives often struggle to obtain face-to-face meetings with prescribers. In contrast, Clinical Nurse Educators’ clinical credibility can open doors. When partnered with a pharma or biotech sales rep, these nurses bring value to the brand by enhancing prescriber knowledge and building trust through product education and training.
Through telephonic support, nurses play an important role in keeping patients adherent to their medication. Nurses in our Clinical Support Centers are available to provide patient education, injection training, product information, REMS support, adverse event reporting, and therapeutic expertise. While the nurses may never meet their patients in person, contact center nurses build trusting relationships and help patients overcome challenges they may face during their therapeutic journey.
I can’t say getting laid off was the best thing that ever happened to me. But I’m sure I wouldn’t be where I’m at today without that seemingly sour turn of events.
As a Nurse Clinician, I have the privilege of working closely with patients. I educate patients on their medication therapy and disease, inform them about services and tools available to help them manage their therapy, and answer any questions they have. This patient-centered focus is what drew me to UBC.
I spent many years working as a nurse in a hospital. In the beginning, I relished the chance to directly help patients, and I didn’t mind the long shifts on my feet. After 15 years, however, the work became very physically and mentally demanding. Hospital budgets were being cut, the intensive care unit I worked in was understaffed, and I knew I was ready for a change.
Each year, National Nurses Week is sponsored by the American Nurses Association to support nursing professionals across the country. Today marks the beginning of Nurses Week and this year, the theme is “Nurses: Leading the Way” in recognition of the leadership that nurses provide in physician offices, hospitals, clinics, in-home settings and beyond.
UBC is familiar with what it takes to be a leader in the nursing space, offering a variety of access options to patients, including Clinical Support Centers, Site of Care nurses, and injection clinics.
