PhD Scholarship Opportunity: Macquarie University
The Aged Care Evaluation and Research (ACER) team at AIHI is offering a domestic PhD scholarship (3 years) to contribute to an exciting new project in collaboration with project partners Anglicare, Sydney North Health Network (SNHN), Northern Sydney Local Health District, Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission and Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association.
The PhD scholar will work within an expert team of national aged care and health informatics collaborators as part of a 5-year National Health and Medical Research Council grant to mobilise information technology in aged care to develop and evaluate a digital dashboard of predictive analytics and decision support. This highly applied research will demonstrate how technology can deliver actionable evidence-based information into the hands of aged care clients, workers, managers and policymakers to drive better care and outcomes for older Australians.
The candidate will develop an original aspect of the study using quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods approaches to examine how to facilitate better data exchange and communication between general practitioners and aged care clients and staff.
We highly encourage those with strong backgrounds in health informatics, clinical practice, or public health and health services research to get in contact to discuss this opportunity. Those from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in research are encouraged to apply.
