24-25th June 2021

Nursing Services Department, Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH), Kano, Nigeria

In an effort to improve evidenced-based practice and equip nurses in clinical settings for a pandemic scenario, Global Research Nurses (GRN) and The Global Health Network (TGHN) in collaboration with Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital is hosting a 2-day free workshop to train nurses in clinical research skills, to strengthen the clinical research and provision of evidence-based practice within their clinical settings and improve care outcomes.

This workshop seeks to create an avenue for nurses to learn basic skills for clinical research and hence promote the work and relevance of Clinical Research Nurses (CRN). In doing so we will improve research knowledge amongst research nurses, including clinical nurse practitioners, and encourage evidence-based clinical practices. Research-related discussions will focus on advancing disease management through active clinical research.

Participants will learn from experienced speakers in the field of clinical research, and through the objectives of the session become more familiar with clinical trials design and conduct to enhance a group of Clinical Research Nurses in Nigeria.
