Associate Director (Partnerships) and Workstream Lead
The Scottish Improvement Science Collaborating Centre is a Scotland-wide development funded by a £3.75 million grant from the Scottish Funding Council, Chief Scientist’s Office, NHS Education Scotland, and the Health Foundation, with substantial additional investment from partner organisations. Led by the University of Dundee (Prof Mary Renfrew, Director) with NHS Tayside, national partners and collaborators in this extensive and ambitious programme of work so far include eight universities and seven NHS Health Boards, national NHS organisations, voluntary and community groups, and local authorities. The Collaborating Centre aims to strengthen the evidence base for improving the quality of health and social care; disseminate the improvement science knowledge base to practitioners, decision-makers, and the public; facilitate translation of knowledge into improvement activity, practice and policy; build engagement, capacity and capability across a network of researchers, practitioners, policymakers, advocacy and user groups; and define new approaches to improvement methodology. The first two work-streams of the Centre are Maternal and Child Health, and Older People. This five-year programme of work is intended to develop as a platform for sustainable activity and growth, and to become a national resource for the best research and practice. This new key post will be responsible for engagement with policy makers and practitioners in health and social care, and will lead the SISCC workstreams.
