New Technologies Clinical Guidance Document Writing Group
Application Deadline: December 9, 2019
AUGS is currently seeking volunteers to serve on a Writing Group to develop a clinical guidance document on New Technologies. Support from AUGS staff will be provided.
This document is to provide a framework for the integration of new technology into the field of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (aka, Urogynecology). The American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) believes that physician members have an obligation to the responsible use of new technology and techniques (NT&T) prior to the broad application into clinical care. This includes new devices and new procedures. This document will present a construct for members on the implementation of new technology and techniques in FPMRS. Guidance related to suggested minimum qualifications of users, elements for training and surgeon readiness, process for establishing responsible oversight, and quality and safety monitoring will be outlined.
AUGS is seeking 5-8 Writing Group members. Participation requires the following:
- regular communication via email
- monthly conference calls
- completion of assignments
- 6 months of commitment
Please submit a letter of interest stating your qualifications for the position, a brief CV, declaration of interest in chair or writing group member position, and financial and intellectual conflict of interest disclosures.
The application for all open positions will be hosted in the AUGS Connect volunteer manager.
