Research Opportunities at Moorfields (ROAM) wins prestigious Nursing Times award

Moorfields’s ROAM has won the Nursing Times Award for Clinical Research Nursing.

The Nursing Times Awards bring together the nursing community to shine a light on the brightest talent in the profession and recognise efforts to make nursing innovative, patient-focused and inclusive. This award recognises Moorfields’ efforts to be at the leading edge of research, making new discoveries and developing better treatments with our partners and patients.

First launched in September 2020, ROAM has made it easier than ever for patients to get involved in research at Moorfields. Patients can log onto our research opportunities portal and express interest in taking part in the wide range of studies that we lead, and also sign up to shape research questions and how research is conducted.

“I’m delighted to accept this award on behalf the ROAM participants and the design team,” says Roxanne Crosby-Nwaobi, lead nurse for research. “As ROAM continues to grow and develop, we hope to increase research awareness and access to research opportunities for our patients and their families, our communities and our staff.”
