Janice Pettie and Karen Osinski, Edinburgh Clinical Toxicology's specialist toxicology nurses, are integral members of the team. Our specialist nurses play a crucial role in the clinical unit in leading a core team of nurses to provide a high standard of care for our patients. They also play an important role in the academic arena and present at national and international conferences and publish articles in peer reviewed journals.
Perhaps one of their biggest achievements, however, is the hugely successful annual TOXTALKS CPD event aimed at improving the knowledge of nurses, paramedics and other health professionals who deal with poisoned patients. This event receives rave reviews every year.
