This position provides a unique opportunity for a Clinical Fellow to investigate the care given to patients diagnosed with primary and/or metastatic breast cancer, and support cancer services to implement quality improvement initiatives for better patient outcomes.
An enthusiastic clinical fellow is being sought to be part of the multidisciplinary team that is delivering two national breast cancer audits, covering primary and metastatic breast cancer. The audits are carried out in partnership with the Association of Breast Surgery and the UK Breast Cancer Group and aim to improve the quality of care delivered to women and men diagnosed with breast cancer by:
1. Providing regular and timely information to cancer services in England and Wales on patterns of care and outcomes.
2. Supporting NHS services to use the information about variation in care for quality improvement initiatives.
The successful candidate will support the development of quality improvement activities of the audit, which will involve undertaking data analysis, producing actionable information for NHS breast units on patterns of care and outcomes, and developing tools / guidance on the translation of the findings into local QI initiatives. The candidate will have a vital role in developing how the audit can support the quality improvement work, and associated communications and networking, including producing outputs such as conference presentations and journal articles. It is expected that the development work / research undertaken by the candidate would form the basis of an MD/PhD thesis.
The deadline for applications has been extended to the 23rd February 2024 at noon
