The nurses play a key role as patient advocate, ensuring patients’ safety and protection, and that patients are well supported throughout the research study. 3. Research nurses need a wide range of skills including management and organizational skills, teaching and mentoring, communication and IT skills including word processing, spreadsheets, database and presentation software, and the ability to undertake internet searches. 4. Collaboration and cooperation with other researchers and members of the multidisciplinary team is crucial for successful research. Patient advocacy is one of the most important of the research nurse’s responsibilities.
