DEPARTMENT: RESEARCH & BEST PRACTICE IMPLEMENTATION
The Praxis Spinal Cord Institute (formerly Rick Hansen Institute) is a Canadian-based not-for-profit organization that leads global collaboration in spinal cord injury research, innovation, and care. We advance ground-breaking ideas that can be put into practice, making lives better. We actively engage people with spinal cord injuries and other world-class experts to work together to identify and solve the most urgent challenges to make exceptional improvements in the health of people with spinal cord injuries. Praxis is an ancient Greek word, a process by which theory is applied practically. This is exactly the work that we do: moving knowledge into action. The Praxis Spinal Cord Institute is proudly accredited by Imagine Canada and was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Charities by Maclean’s and Money Sense magazines, achieving an A+ rating.
The National Clinical Liaison will provide clinical leadership and direction to the research and knowledge translation activities performed at Praxis Spinal Cord Institute by working closely with Clinical Research, Data Services, Consumer and Best Practice Implementation Teams. The National Clinical Liaison will provide a combination of clinical expertise in spinal cord injury and experience implementing research evidence into practice. This position will offer the opportunity to expand knowledge of SCI care outside a facility and across a continuum of care, nationally and internationally. This role will impact care and inform research more broadly, develop understanding of knowledge translation, behavior change and implementing practice change.
