COVID vaccine research at Newcastle Hospitals
In a recent RCN Magazine feature, Matron Aileen Burn has described how nursing colleagues at Newcastle Hospitals have not only been caring for patients during COVID-19, but how their role also extends to vital vaccine trials. She discusses Newcastle Hospital’s role in delivering phase three trials as part of the Oxford COVID-19 study, and how this fits into her research role overall.
Matron Burn is closely connected to the NIHR Newcastle BRC through her role as research Matron, overseeing the NIHR Newcastle Clinical Research Facility’s trial activities.
