| || JOB OVERVIEW
Under the supervision of the Project Director, the Recruiter/Facilitator will assist on a California HIV/AIDS Research Program (CHRP)-funded transgender-specific pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) demonstration project for HIV prevention. The demonstration project comprises the following: outreach and participant recruitment, HIV testing to ensure that all enrolled subjects are HIV-negative, group medical appointments to support PrEP adherence, one-on-one Integrated Next Step Counseling sessions, medical appointments, and additional research related study activities (such as baseline and follow-up surveys). Individual sessions with Recruiter/Facilitators will focus on increasing PrEP adherence and/or reinforcing adherence behaviors with participants. Group medical appointments will occur as drop-in health education groups led by Recruiter/Facilitators during clinic hours. Group medical appointments provide the opportunity for participants to share resources, seek support, receive ongoing health education, and brainstorm strategies for increasing PrEP adherence as well as other trans health topics.
The Recruiter/Facilitator will participate in initial training, follow-up training, and ongoing quality assurance monitoring and supervision. The Recruiter/Facilitator will perform independently or with general direction at the fully operational journey level of the series to execute, manage, and coordinate research protocols, as directed by the Clinical Research Supervisor and/or Principal Investigator (PI); may coordinate the data collection and operations of several concurrent clinical research studies under the guidelines of research protocols, UCSF and regulating agency policies.
The individual’s duties may include, but will not be limited to supporting the management and coordinating the tasks of single or multiple clinical research studies, depending on their size and complexity; act as intermediary between services and departments while implementing the intervention; manage and report on study results; participate in the review and writing of protocols to ensure institutional review board approval within University compliance; help assure compliance with all relevant regulatory agencies; implement and maintain periodic quality control procedures; interface with departments to obtain UCSF approval prior to study initiation; maintain all regulatory documents; report study progress to investigators; and participate in any internal and external audits or reviews of study protocols.
Study-specific individual’s duties may include: recruiting study participants; assisting with the retention of study participants; delivering the study intervention using a semi-structured manual for group medical appointments and individual sessions with participants; collect and submit all process data; work with the research team to schedule and track participants; recruit Community Advisory Board (CAB) members; schedule and assist with conducting CAB meetings and provide CAB feedback to the larger research team. The individual will also assist with other study-related activities as needed, such as assisting with meeting preparation and coordination, attending transgender community events related to health and wellness and participating in team meetings and overall Center of Excellence for Transgender Health activities and meetings.
