Knowledge Resource Specialist
An important part of CKI’s mission is to help provide pain management information through its Resource Library by cataloging institutional policies and procedures so they are accessible by other institutions. All CKI certified institutions are required to contribute policies and procedures to this library. Each policy is categorized by the specific type of pain, the type of document, the intended age group, and is made available to all who might benefit from it. Our initial goal is to combine policies from all certified institutions into one user-friendly knowledge database. In addition, the Library needs to expand its reach by establishing liaisons with patient resource libraries and educational material created by experts in the field so that clinicians can have access to up-to-date information on pediatric pain.
The Resource Library was recently redesigned to be more user friendly, and we now need an individual to bring the library to its full potential. The job reports to the Program Director and is located in Boston. Working from a remote location is expected for the majority of time, but meetings in Boston, at least monthly, will be required. The job is part-time, approximately 15-20 hours per week.
