The ICS Standardisation Steering Committee (SSC) invites applications from ICS members who wish to contribute to a Working Group with the remit to develop an ICS Standardisation of Terminology for Continence Products.
The terminology for urinary and faecal continence product designs and features used in ISO standards, guidelines, medical device registers, reimbursement schemes, research publications, product packaging and product information currently differs. There is a need for uniformity on how the different product designs and categories are named. This information is necessary for many audiences, including patients and caregivers, policymakers and payers, governments, health and social care professionals to provide clarity and consistency.
The responsibility of the working group will be to develop an ICS Standard in line with research and stakeholder feedback into an up-to-date and evidence-based Terminology Standard as a basis for clinical practice and research. The selection of the chairperson and membership of the Working Group will be undertaken by the ICS Standardisation Steering Committee.
If you would like to be involved in this opportunity, either as Chair or as a member of the working group, please click here for more information.
Deadline for receipt of applications is Monday 6th April 2015. All applications should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org
