Changemakers

Clinical Governance & Research Committee Members

SCIA is establishing a Clinical Governance and Research Committee made up people from lived experience of disability, lived experience in a carer role, researchers and clinicians to oversee Clinical Governance and Research Framework.

At SCIA, our community are central to decision making and play a vital role working alongside professionals with expertise in their field to guide, inform and prioritise.

We are seeking a range of roles to fill this committee including:

• Two members of the community with a spinal cord injury, or a neurological condition
• One member of the community who is a carer of a person with a spinal cord injury or a neurological condition
• Three clinicians in the rehabilitation of neurological conditions
• One academic (researcher) in the field of rehabilitation of neurological conditions

To deliver the strategic vision, the Clinical Governance and Research Committee will advise SCIA’s Board of Directors.

As SCIA is a national organisation, we are inviting expressions of interest from across Australia. The committee will meet virtually, and will require a two hour time commitment on a quarterly basis, as well as some background work in preparation for, and after the meetings.

If you would like to apply for any of these roles please provide the following to jobs@scia.org.au:

• An expression of interest outlining why you are interested in joining this Committee
• A Recent CV

Applications close Monday October 20, 2020
