Zoe Inman, research nurse
I have worked in research for seven years within older person's delivery team. The studies I deliver are for people who are experiencing memory difficulties or who have a diagnosis of dementia and for carers. These have included drug trials, genetic research, wellbeing and therapy studies. I have also supported a young person's study and worked with the UEA.
I feel very privileged in my job. I meet remarkable people who give up their time to take part in research, who share their life stories to provide information and knowledge that may help others in the future. I work with an amazing team who are supportive, proactive creative and encouraging.
I am interested in individual's lived experience and how research can translate these experiences and support future care.
I facilitate NIHR good clinical practice training and last year I was part of a communication training steering group. Within the Trust, a colleague and I developed and facilitate valid informed consent training. I also facilitate clinical research in practice with a colleague.
