Geriatric Medicine Research (Dalhousie / Nova Scotia Health) seeks a statistician / epidemiologist with experience in program evaluation to participate in a new project that seeks to improve care for frail older adults who are acutely ill. The successful applicant will assist in developing and analyzing data that can help evaluate a program to improve routine frailty identification and management, individualized goal setting, care planning, and physical mobilization. We are looking for an energetic, adaptable person who can work with teams across the province as they develop and implement education modules for each of these topics, and related areas. Teamwork is essential, as are clear writing and presentation skills. A working knowledge of program evaluation, using both quantitative and qualitative methods, will be a considerable asset. So too would be previous experience working with population data including frail older adults and those with dementia. You will join a team that has a long history of doing cutting-edge research on all aspects of frailty. The team is now aiming to translate its evidence into practice, to aid groups that wish to improve their care offerings, and to help them become knowledge resources who can encourage the uptake of such innovation in their communities of practice. This job may also be of interest to someone (MSc or PhD) with academic career aspirations, as the group is well and widely published.
