The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises of four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.

Many of our recruitment programmes use values-based interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significance difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

Salary: Band 5

Hours: 400 Hours

Post status: 1 year fixed term

Responsible To: Director, Oxford Institute of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research (OxINMAHR)

Accountable To: Professor Debra Jackson

The Oxford Institute of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research (OxINMAHR) is the research collaboration between Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford Brookes University and Oxford University.

The mission of the Oxford Institute for Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research is to conduct world class research that will produce knowledge to enhance the health and wellbeing of the population of Oxford, Oxfordshire, The Thames Valley, and beyond. OxINMAHR researchers take a broad, holistic view of health, to encompass physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, cultural and social elements; and, consider health and illness to occur in the context of family life.

These 1 year posts are an excellent opportunity for a graduate nurse to contribute to research to enhance knowledge around dementia. The successful applicants will be supported to participate in many aspects of the research process, including literature searching, writing a proposal, contributing to ethical processes, data collection, data analysis and to contribute to writing articles and papers for publication and presentation at conferences. The project is funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.

The main task for the successful applicants is to support a mixed methods study into dementia that will involve a multitude of data collection approaches including interviewing patients and carers, and collecting data from existing records.

Applicants invited to interview will be required to present a 10 minute PowerPoint presentation on the ‘Research priorities for providing optimal nursing care for patients with dementia and their families’.

Secondment opportunities will be negotiated for Oxford University Hospitals Foundation NHS Trust employees.

Successful applicants will be expected to continue to work in their clinical posts within the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust hospitals with 400 hours being bought out to enable them to undertake this research activity
