Nicole Marten is a Registered Nurse and Critical Care Research Coordinator at St Boniface Hospital, Manitoba

Nicole Marten is a Registered Nurse and Critical Care Research Coordinator at St Boniface Hospital, Manitoba, is an active member of the CCCTG (Canadian Critical Care Trials Group) and a former member of the CCCTRCG (Canadian Critical Care Research Coordinators Group) executive committee.
Nicole completed her diploma of nursing in 1988 at St Boniface Hospital Diploma School of Nursing followed by the completion of the Intensive Care Certificate in 1990.  She worked in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit from 1990 – 1999.  In 1999 she began her career in Clinical Research.  She worked as a Respiratory Research Nurse for 7 years which included some ICU trials and then moved on to Interventional Cardiology Research.  In November 2007 she was the successful candidate for the Critical Care Research Nurse position which included coordinating clinical trials at both St Boniface and Grace Hospitals.  In 2011 Nicole began working with Dr. Ryan Zarychanski on the HALO pilot study that evaluated the efficacy and safety of unfractionated heparin in septic shock – a program that has now evolved, with close collaboration from the CCCTG (Canadian Critical Care Trials Group), into a multi-centre international randomized controlled trial.  Nicole now acts as the project lead and multi-centre coordinator for this international clinical trial.  She also has a special interest in the psychological well-being of ICU survivors and was actively involved with a local, single center pilot study testing the feasibility of a diary intervention in the ICU.
