In the past decade, clinical trials have undergone some important and dramatic advances. The nurse navigator has emerged as an important role. Closer adherence to the requirements set forth in the Declaration of Helsinki has brought about changes in procedure and practice. Around the world, the sheer number of clinical trial registries has increased. Buzz words such as "transparency" and "disclosure" have spread around the medical community, resulting in a call for more information sharing in regards to ethics and informed consent.
Changes have also taken place in the role of the clinical trials nurse, with a multiplicity of titles, job descriptions, duties, and educational and professional requirements. Worldwide, the role of the clinical trials nurse has changed even more drastically, with traditional responsibilities being delegated to non-nursing staff.
The second edition of Manual For Clinical Trials Nursing is intended to add clarity and perspective to the rapidly changing landscape of clinical trials nursing. New chapters in this revised and updated edition examine budget, compassionate use of protocol drugs, designing computerized tools to verify eligibility, electronic data capture, and much more.
Appendices have also been expanded to include key documents in the ethical treatment of human subjects, such as the Nuremberg Code, the Declaration of Helsinki, and more.
With the oncology research world shrinking, the contribution of international colleagues cannot be overlooked and this new edition includes chapters from contributors hailing from 10 countries outside the U.S. A new chapter discusses the European Union Directive, offering insight into the framework within European nurses operate, and the section with international contributors has nearly doubled from the first edition.
If you are a nurse involved in clinical trials, you need to update your collection with this new edition.
