We are looking for an enthusiastic psychology or nursing graduate who wishes to work a project to improve outcomes with patients with multiple/ coexisting illnesses, namely patients with diabetes and kidney failure. The project has been set up to develop and test feasibility of an intervention.
The purpose of the job is to carry out and analyze focus groups, interview and questionnaire-based studies with patients, their family members and renal health care professionals in order to identify their needs and barriers and facilitators to implementation of a support program as well as preferred means for delivery of the intervention. This information will then be used to develop and test an intervention for this patient group.
You should have: a first degree in psychology, nursing or related field with good academic records. Experience in one or more of the following is essential: systematic data collection and/or qualitative research; experience with patients; or previous employment/experience of research in a healthcare setting. Excellent interpersonal skills, self-motivation and organisational ability are essential requirements for the role.
The post is available from 1 September 2013, or as soon as possible thereafter, on a full-time basis for a period of 21 months in the first instance. Further funding to support the post may be available for when C-DIRECT moves onto the full trial for the intervention. Interested candidates should submit CV in email below; with shortlisted candidates invited for an interview.
Interested candidates are invited to contact Dr Konstadina Griva for informal discussion about this post: email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 65163156.
