The Science of Healthcare Delivery
The research project will be undertaken within the newly established New England Institute for Healthcare Research (NEIHR). The project will have close affiliation with the Hunter New England Local Health District and networks of community-based health professionals. The context for the PhD scholarship is exploring the enablers and facilitators of e-health and digital health technologies, particularly their relevance in rural and regional settings in improving access to healthcare.
The successful candidate will be required to work alongside health service industry partners and the broader scientific community and therefore display a willingness to work in rural areas and the capacity to work both independently and as part of a team.
