Clinical Research Nurses and Midwives invited to participate in IRNN ‘Count Me In’ survey

The Irish Research Nurses Network (IRNN) has published an on-line national survey which seeks to capture data and information on all those working as Clinical Research Nurses (CRNs) or Clinical Research Midwives in Ireland.

The ‘Count Me In’ survey is targeted at CRNs/Midwives working in all settings, including  in clinical research facilities/centres affiliated with academic institutions, hospitals and in other locations and organisations such as primary care, research charities and clinical trials networks, and it aims to discover:

  • How many research nurses/midwives are currently working in Ireland
  • Where they are located
  • The terms of their employment
  • Their roles and responsibilities.

If you are a nurse or midwife on the active register of the Nursing & Midwifery Board of Ireland, currently employed in a clinical research role, we would like to hear from you at

Data from the survey will be collated into a report that will be disseminated to stakeholders, such as the Health Research Board and the Health Service Executive. Findings will also be used to advocate for the increased recognition of the research nurse/midwife, and to justify the development of formalised job descriptions, education and integration within academic and healthcare institutions.

Please contact the Project Manager, Carole Schilling (, if you are:

  • An employer or manager of research nurses/midwives who can provide information about research nurse posts in your organisation
  • Available as a point of contact for your organisation, research area or region.
