Broadening our horizons: Encouraging Industry Research to the "green shoots" of Cumbria & Lancashire
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) supports research across 25 Comprehensive Local Research Networks (CLRNs) within England. A key part of this research is that of Industry Research.Each CLRN across England has an Industry Manager (IM) who helps to facilitate and deliver Industry Research in their network.Within the Cumbria and Lancashire Comprehensive Local Research Network the Industry Portfolio has begun to flourish.In order to increase engagement into Industry Portfolio studies the IM has a dual role.She is also the Lead Nurse and with her clinical background she can grasp the idiosyncrasies of the many specialty areas.She utilises her generic Research Practitioner workforce in order to assist in facilitation of Industry Studies within areas naïve to research. The IM ensures that PIs are aware of their responsibilities and how much time they will need to dedicate to this role.Robust feasibility is vital to ensure that realistic targets are set. The IM has a vision of realistic research and will only send out studies that she feels are deliverable.The IM is instrumental in helping to facilitate efficient site set up and delivery of targets.She does this with her local knowledge, with help from her core Trials Team if extra resource is needed and indeed seeing if there is a need for new posts to be developed in that specialty area.The IM continues to ensure that these processes occur in order to maintain recruitment to time and target.
