Working at the Doherty Institute is a rich and inspiring experience.
Consumer Representative for the SNAP Trial Steering Committee
We are looking for 1 consumer to join the SNAP (Staphylococcus aureus Network Adaptive Platform) Trial Steering Committee, commencing as soon as possible.
Every year in Australia, ~5,000 people are hospitalised due to Staphylococcus aureus (golden staph) bloodstream infections, with a mortality rate of 20% per episode. The SNAP trial aims to determine the best combination of treatment options for patients with golden staph bloodstream infections. The trial is in the early set-up phase and we are looking for a consumer to join monthly meetings (currently all online, approximately 1-2 hours/meeting) to discuss trial progress, review patient-facing documents, and provide input from a consumer perspective.
Ideally, we would like the applicant to have had a previous diagnosis of a serious infection and recovered either in hospital or a similar setting. The consumer will be reimbursed for their attendance at meetings ($60/hour) and where meetings occur in person, will be compensated for travel and sustenance provided.
Please send a brief cover letter outlining your interest and CV to the clinical trial manager:
