CARI GUIDELINES (CARING FOR AUSTRALIANS & NEW ZEALANDERS WITH KIDNEY IMPAIRMENT) - MEMBERSHIP OF CARI GUIDELINES STEERING COMMITTEE - CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

CARI Guidelines produces kidney guidelines primarily for use by nephrologists, renal nurses, general practitioners and allied health Australia staff located in and New Zealand. The Steering Committee serves as the advisory body for CARI Guidelines, sets policy and priorities, provides assistance to the editorial office as needed, assists with the appointment of Guideline Group Convenors and Members, reviews completed guideline drafts to ensure quality and accuracy, and reviews and approves the annual budget. Members also promote the CARI Guidelines at various forums and within their units.    
 
The Steering Committee usually meets four times each year, with two of these meetings being face to face. The face to face meetings are held in near Sydney or Melbourne Airports, with the other meetings held by video/teleconference. Additional work outside of meetings is sometimes required, reviewing documents and coordinating the assistance of people who can aid with guideline development. Members of the Steering Committee are expected to assume responsibility for the work involved and serve a 3-year term. There is no remuneration for the role, but CARI Guidelines covers expenses involved in attending meetings. All Steering Committee Members must sign a Conflict of Interest document. 
 
There are currently 12 Steering Committee Members, including the Chair. The Steering Committee includes representatives from Australia and New Zealand with backgrounds in nephrology and renal nursing.
 
Steering Committee Members should have an interest in evidence-based medicine, be supportive of guideline development and ideally, bring skills to the Committee that will assist in CARI Guidelines achieving its goals. CARI Guidelines is committed to geographical representation and gender inclusiveness.
 
Please direct enquiries about these positions, or expressions of interest, in the form of a cover letter and an abbreviated CV (no more than 2-pages) to Dr David Tunnicliffe, Scientific Director, CARI Guidelines, at email: david.tunnicliffe@sydney.edu.au
