I have been an RN with a small rural hospital, working in the Infusion therapy department. We recently had COC survey our facility and found us deficient in a research coordinator. They have asked me to fill the position but as I would be the first one, I am winging it. I have been asked to bring our percentage of patients on clinical trials up to 6%. Our facility is unable to do pharmaceutical trials and so my focus has been on trying to find trials that center on quality of life. Currently I have been just scouring clinicatrials.gov and emailing the contacts of potential fits. My questions#1 is there a better way to get this accomplished?#2 is there more to a research coordinator than this? What else should I be doing?Obviously I know nothing. Please help.
