About the Project
The new aCBT programme will then be tested using a Phase II randomised controlled clinical trial methodology. This could include outcome evaluation, embedded qualitative process evaluation or trial feasibility and acceptability.
The successful applicant would join a thriving department comprising researchers involved in development and evaluation of interventions for people post stroke and ABI, CBT research programmes (child PTSD, psychosis) and a wider faculty with considerable expertise in clinical trials in the area of stroke, dementia, ageing and mental health.
Key learning objectives would cover systematic review and/or realist review methodologies, trial methodology, PPI in clinical / stroke research, qualitative analysis, and knowledge of CBT practice (the department runs regional accredited training in CBT). The successful applicant would also benefit from the excellent opportunities for research knowledge and skills development through the PPD programme, and to network with other PhD students via the doctoral college and shared social activities.
