Term position, anticipated to extend until March 29, 2019, subject to the availability of work.
An exciting opportunity exists for a Quality Improvement/Knowledge Translation Facilitator position with the Changing CARE project - a three year project being funded by the Ontario Change Foundation to create strategies for engaging families in the care we provide. This position will support both the Changing CARE project team and the various work groups and committees that will be developed to support this initiative.
The Quality Improvement/Knowledge Translation Facilitator will lead the design, development and implementation of a quality improvement strategy for St. Joseph's Changing CARE Initiative Improving CARE Together. The Change Foundation, a provincial health policy think-tank, has funded four initiatives across Ontario aimed at improving Family Caregiver Engagement within a health care organization. The QI/KT Facilitator will serve as a leader, coach, and expert in quality improvement and in implementing knowledge translation strategies. This position will support and guide the implementation of strategies aimed at enhancing family caregiver engagement through better communication, assessment and recognition. This position will also support the implementation of quality improvement principles and methodologies within all phases and aspects of the project (planning, implementation, monitoring/controlling) using co-design approaches.
The QI/KT Facilitator will assist in the collection of qualitative and quantitative data, provide analysis of that data and prepare reports and presentations highlighting the work of the Improving CARE Together Project.
The QI/KT Facilitator will guide the implementation and execution of an experience-based co-design process, assess and evaluate program outcomes, and identify opportunities for quality improvement. This role will work closely with the Changing CARE Project Leader. This role will require spending time working directly with family caregivers, frontline providers, leaders, and with community partners. The QI/KT Facilitator will participate on provincial Task Groups related to this project. They may need to represent the St Joseph's Health Care London project, at a variety of provincial and regional venues.
