The BHIVA Audit and Standards Subcommittee regularly appoints a specialist registrar or trainee researcher lead for each of its major national audit projects. Trainees are invited to put themselves forward for this role for the 2024 audit, which will concentrate on documentation of co-medications, especially within the aging cohort, and combined care for co-morbidities. The key areas of focus will include communication with GPs, new BHIVA guidance regarding statins and vaccinations.
The trainee lead for a national audit project is co-opted as a member of the Audit and Standards Subcommittee and their role is to:
Work with members of the committee and the BHIVA Clinical Audit Coordinator, Lucie Ralph, in planning the audit and analysing the data
Present the audit findings orally at a BHIVA conference
Prepare and submit an article based on the audit findings for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, for which they would normally be first author. The committee’s view is that this should be submitted within six months of the conference presentation.
Ideally, applicants should have had at least two years’ experience working in HIV and need to be nominated by a consultant or senior member of the BHIVA Audit and Standards Subcommittee. The trainee should also have the support and agreement of their own consultant or principal investigator, if different. Successful applicants should be BHIVA members for the period of time they are on the committee.
Interested trainees should contact a consultant or senior member of the sub-committee (see list below) to request nomination. If this is agreed, the consultant or senior member should submit the trainee’s name and contact details to Lucie Ralph, at [email protected] by 17:00 on Tuesday 27 February 2024. The successful candidate will be selected at random from those nominated and notified during the following week.
