Clinical Lead for the National Audit for Post-operative Outcomes, part-time, voluntary position

 

Do you have a passion for evidence-based veterinary medicine and engaging with the veterinary community? RCVS Knowledge is inviting applications for the position of Clinical Lead for the National audit for Post-operative Outcomes (NAPO).

The platform will allow clinical audit and benchmarking to take place on a national scale. The aim of this project is to create evidence-based insights into which interventions and techniques provide the best outcomes. Veterinary professionals will be able to make comparisons with anonymised data within the audit.

This project forms part of RCVS Knowledge’s Quality Improvement Campaign which supports practice teams to embed continuous quality improvement (QI) techniques for a structured and evidence-based approach to animal care. Its purpose is to engage the wider veterinary community in the concepts and delivery of quality improvement, to drive a cultural change that is open to the prospect of analysis, change, and ultimately, improvement. NAPO will join other free to use, anonymised auditing tools provided by RCVS Knowledge including the Canine Cruciate Registry and the National Antibiotic Audit.

The Clinical Lead will be an enthusiastic individual who will develop, inspire, and motivate colleagues, veterinary teams, and organisations, to work collaboratively towards a common goal – playing a pivotal role and directly influencing continuous improvements in patient care.

This is a voluntary position and the successful candidate will be required to commit approximately two days per month to the role.
