Open call for nominations: Scientific Committee

Background

The Scientific Committee (SC) is a core element of the PC4 organisational structure. The principal focus of the SC is to develop and monitor a portfolio of high-quality research for PC4, linked to our values and strategic goals. The portfolio of PC4 research should cover the role of primary care across the cancer continuum including prevention, screening and early detection, survivorship and palliative care. Additionally, members of the Scientific Committee help provide providing guidance and expert review for PC4 workshops and activities including the PC4 Scientific Symposium, Concept Development Workshops, Joint Consumer Advisory Group Workshops, and Early Career Researcher Network Workshops. Please view the Scientific Committee Terms of Reference.

Eligibility

Only PC4 members are eligible for nomination to the SC. Students and early career researchers are encouraged to apply. Nominations from PC4 members working in health policy are strongly encouraged to apply.

Commitment

It is anticipated members of the SC will participate in two face-to-face meetings and 4 teleconferences annually.
