RI-21-029 – Research/Project Coordinator
The CHEO asthma program is intended to improve the quality of care provided for children with asthma who are seen at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and to support capacity for managing children with asthma in the Ottawa region. Within CHEO, the program aims to improve care for children with asthma seen in the outpatient clinics as well as those admitted to hospital or seen in the emergency department. Individuals at CHEO who provide care for children with asthma form a multi-disciplinary group including physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and others.
The CHEO Asthma program is looking for a temporary full-time (0.8 FTE) Project Coordinator to help support the CHEO asthma program and related research activities. The position is available for at least 6 months and may be renewable beyond this. The individual hired for this role will be responsible (with support from the CHEO respirology physicians, and the Asthma Advanced Practice Nurse) for designing and coordinating quality improvement studies to measure the success of the program, analyzing outcomes and preparing progress reports and presentations to summarize the findings. An additional role of this individual would be to provide research coordination for scientific research projects related to asthma care improvement led by investigators within the Division of Respirology at CHEO. Currently ongoing projects include a Health Canada regulated trial, systematic review and several student-led cohort studies.
