Research Assistant HIV Data Quality Improvement
Saskatchewan HIV/AIDS Research Endeavour (SHARE) was founded in 2011 as a research cooperative between research clinicians working at the University of Saskatchewan. Over the last number of years the people at SHARE have worked hard to expand this cooperative into a nonprofit research group that is focused on building research capacity in Saskatchewan and providing evidence-based support and solutions to key issues impacting HIV treatment, care, and preventative programming throughout the province. Working strategically with clinicians, policy makers, healthcare professionals, and community organizations, SHARE is using research to help inform, guide, and determine best practices that will have the strongest opportunity to improve the lives of people living with HIV in Saskatchewan.
SHARE is looking for a medical or pharmacy student to assist with the digitization of patient charts for a national cohort study on HIV. The student will be trained in how to identify, complete and verify accuracy of electronic medical records (EMR). Following initial training, the student will complete EMR digitization and data verification at Westside Clinic (primarily) and Positive Living Program at Royal University Hospital. Training will take place in April (the schedule for which will be arranged between the student and supervisor), and data digitization and verification will take place from May 1 to July 31 during clinic hours. Approximate time commitment is 30-35 hours per week for 12 weeks, (not including training in April, which will be approximately 5-10 hours in total), at the graduate student rate of $18.51/hour.
If interested, lease submit a CV (no cover letter) to Sugandhi at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed starting April 12 and will continue until a suitable candidate has been identified. Only those short-listed for an interview will be contacted.
