NJR seeks new Regional Clinical Coordinator members
Do you participate in the NJR? Do you have a view on data collection, data reporting or data quality? Would you like an opportunity to facilitate national audit, quality improvement and best practice across a region? Would you like to represent the voice of your surgeon colleagues in NJR business? Could you take on responsibility as an NJR Regional Clinical Coordinator (RCC)?
If the answer yes to any of the questions of above then the National Joint Registry would be pleased to hear from you. The registry is currently seeking interest and applications from hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder joint replacement surgeons who wish to actively participate in the Regional Clinical Coordinator Sub-committee – the group responsible for bringing the experiences and views of hospitals and surgeons to the NJR work programme and vice versa.
Members would be responsible for demonstrating regional leadership in registry compliance, consent and data quality and supporting the implementation of best practice in orthopaedic quality improvement. Members are also expected to bring forward ideas and suggestions to improve and shape NJR initiatives.
In recent years, the NJR RCC Sub-committee has influenced the:
- Development of Clinician Feedback
- Development of the Minimum Data Set
- Discussions and activity aligned to the Consultant Outcomes Publication programme
- Identification of data quality audit opportunities and the testing of new initiatives
- Development of the Public and Patient Guides to the Annual Report
In the forthcoming year, the RCC Sub-committee will be integral in ensuring the successful implementation of the NJR’s Supporting Data Quality Strategy, driving forward engagement with registry data and services, and providing advice on any key NJR operational activity.
If you are interested in finding out more about the role, please contact Elaine Young, NJR Director of Operations on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7997 7352 before the closing date of 9am, Friday 24 November 2017.
