The Pacific AIDS Network and the Positive Living, Positive Homes (PLPH) study are seeking a Research Site Coordinator for Vancouver to be involved in an exciting opportunity to be involved in research that will create social change. The Site Coordinator will coordinate research activities in the Vancouver area for this community-based research study. The Coordinator will: follow and monitor study protocols and policies; recruit and carry-out interviews with research participants, as appropriate; act as a study liaison with organizations and community partners in the Vancouver area; assist with interview transcription; support data analysis; assist with the facilitation of team meetings and knowledge-translation activities; and help maintain record keeping systems and procedures.
Positive Living Positive Homes is an innovative community-based research study in British Columbia, born out of the HIV community’s identification of housing as a critical health determinant for people living with, or at risk of, HIV and AIDS. This 3-year study uses a qualitative case study approach to examine how local and provincial policies and programs interact with and impact people living with HIV/AIDS’ abilities to manage their health and wellbeing and to highlight policies and programs that can be used as models across jurisdictions in BC. This study has recently completed the first phase of collaboratively developing research methods, and will soon be initiating interviews in three sites in the province: Greater Vancouver, Kamloops, and Prince George.
