RCN advertising for a E-Health Nurse Adviser

The Royal College of Nursing is currently advertising for an E-Health Nurse Adviser.

They are offering £48,336 per annum pro rata (Including London Weighting) for the Part-time, 21 hours per week post

This role is permanent but secondments for one year in the first instance will be also be considered Flexible UK base.

Leading this UK-wide specialty, you’ll influence and shape policy and practice in eHealth, one of the most exciting developments in nursing practice for many years.

This is also very much a communicating and influencing role, for which excellent interpersonal skills are a must.

Researcher job for the NHS Connecting for Health Evaluation Programme

An interesting looking job advert for a Research Associate/Fellow working on systematic reviews for the NHS Connecting for Health Evaluation Programme has recently been advertised.

The job is at the School of Clinical Sciences and Community Health at the University of Edinburgh, in association with Imperial College London, and will involve undertaking a systematic overview of the impact of information technology on the quality and safety of health services. This will assemble a series of systematic reviews about information technology in health services and weave these into a comprehensive and authoritative report with reference to safety and quality of care.

If the outputs are up to the standard of the Report of Evaluation of Summary Care Record Early Adopter Programme published a few weeks ago then this could be very worthwhile work.

If I was in Edinburgh (and the post had a slightly higher salary) I would consider applying for it myself.
