Calling all trainees
Trainee representation on the NDAU board
Do you have an interest in the use of routine clinical data to advance newborn care and outcomes?
Expressions of Interest are invited from a trainee representative to join the Neonatal Data Analysis Unit (NDAU) Steering Board. The NDAU is an independent academic unit based at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital campus of Imperial College London (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/neonatal-data-analysis-unit). The NDAU was established to assist UK neonatal services to improve newborn healthcare and outcomes by driving improvements in the quality and completeness of electronic clinical data and developing their use in audit, evaluations, surveillance and research.
The National Neonatal Research Database (NNRD) is created and managed at the NDAU as a national resource. The NNRD contains data received from all NHS Trusts with Caldicott Guardian and Lead Clinician approval, through the Badger platform. The NNRD is approved by the National Research Ethics Service and the Ethics & Confidentiality Committee of the National Information Governance Board. The NNRD is used for analyses for the National Neonatal Audit Programme and a growing range of healthcare evaluations and research projects.
The NDAU would like to appoint one trainee representative to join the Steering Board. The Steering Board meets 3-4 monthly and provides clinical, academic and health services expertise and leadership to develop and promote the work of the NDAU. Please send a one page Expression of Interest to Richard Colquhoun, NDAU Manager (email@example.com) by 25th February 2020, summarising your training to date, why you are interested in this position, and how you would hope to support the work of the NDAU.
