The Regional Director—Research, Evaluation & Analytics works in a co-leadership relationship with the Medical Lead/Northern Medical Program (NMP) Assistant Dean of Research to guide and support the development and spread of research, evaluation and analytic capabilities across the organization. The aligned objective of these services is to help Northern Health realize its strategic directions through the use of evidence and data in planning and operational decision-making. The Regional Director collaborates with researchers, academic institutions and other organizations within and beyond the North, to achieve strategic alignment where appropriate, to pursue research funding opportunities, and promote research, knowledge mobilization and implementation science across the region. The Regional Director is expected to foster excellent relations with external partners and is strongly encouraged to take an active role in academic research/education activities.
In partnership with the Medical Lead, the Regional Director will develop and strengthen relationships with clinical and non-clinical service providers toward the promotion and support of research activities across the organization, at the University Hospital of Northern British Columbia and with the UBC Northern Medical Program specifically.
