As the only global provider of commercial solutions, Quintiles understands what it takes to deliver nationally and internationally. Our teams help biopharma get their medicines to the people who need them. We help customers gain insight and access to their markets and ultimately demonstrate their product’s value to payers, physicians and patients. A significant part of our business is acting as the biopharma’s sales force to physicians or providing nurses to educate patients or prescribers. With the right experience, you can help deliver medical breakthroughs in the real world.
We are excited to announce that at this time we are looking for a Virtual Nurse Educator to join our team of over 10,000 global field personnel supporting our pharmaceutical and biotech clients.
Virtual Nurse Educator
Patients are at the center of our business strategies. The Virtual Nurse Educator Program is an educational based program designed as a resource for patients living with auto-immune diseases that have been prescribed specific medications. Nurse Educators provide education about specific disease treatments, and resources to help patients better begin and manage their disease state and resources associated with their prescribed medication. Virtual Nurse Educators are responsible for participating in one-on-one communications with patients as well as appropriate medical professionals within the associated treatment process. Since the program is strictly educational based, Nurse Educators do not provide medical advice or work clinically within this role.
The Virtual Nurse Educator will:
- Coordinate and facilitate the connection between patients and program approved, patient based resources.
- Provide educational training to patients on specific disease states, and assigned medication.
- Develop local Patient Advocacy opportunities by creating and/or supporting existing community networks and educational forums
- Support patient and provider educational speaker programs
- Provide patient-focused education to promote behavioral change for the empowerment of patients to improve specific treatment compliance
- Foster appropriate dialogue between patient and health care provider
We look forward to the prospect of working with you! Please apply on-line at: http://www.quintiles.com/
