Leading Change Adding Value Clinical Fellow role

2 May 2017

Leading Change Adding Value (LCAV) is the Nursing, Midwifery and Care framework that was launched in 2017; building on from the Compassion in Practice Nursing, Midwifery and Care Strategy. Sharon Blackburn (NCF) sits of the LCAV Governance Board.

The role of Leading Change, Adding Value Clinical Fellow is currently advertised on the NHS Jobs website 

It is banded as an 8b for 2.5 days a week until 31 March 2019. The main aims of the role are:

Develop close links and working relationships with the Council of Deans and foster relationships with academic partners.
Identify and progress opportunities to collaborate in the development and creation of an annual LCAV research portfolio to reduce unwarranted variation in practice and in doing so start to build and demonstrate an underpinning evidence base.
Work with other relevant stakeholders to identify national research priorities that support nursing, midwifery and care staff to identify, address and reduce unwarranted variation in practice.
Work with admin colleagues within the organisational Information Governance framework to develop a database of research opportunities across regional and national programmes which support nursing, midwifery and care staff to deliver the triple aims outcomes identified in the LCAV framework and Five Year Forward View.
Consider and identify how nursing, midwifery and care staff can take more of a leadership role with the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) 

We are really keen to identify any individuals who may potentially be interested and have knowledge and understanding of research and development processes and experience of working for or alongside academic institutions. They should also have an understanding of healthcare policy and evidence of complex relationship building with senior stakeholders. They should additionally be able to negotiate and agree collaborative research programmes that meet both the needs of national programme priorities and academic partners.

If you know of anyone who may be interested in the opportunity I would be very grateful if you could forward this to them or they may wish to speak with Stacey McCann (National Nursing Lead - Strategic Programmes and Business) or via telephone at: 07768 866530
