About the Project
Currently, data is collated by individual A&E departments and mental health trusts separately and the current evidence does not allow a clear understanding of patient profiles and approaches to pathway management. This research is required to determine whether data collection at A&E sites is acceptable and feasible for planning the most effective pathways for individuals who attend in suicidal crisis. The aim is to gain an understanding of how these visits are coded and whether the pathways of care are consistent at each site. Additionally, we will explore decision-making process by staff about the management of patients who attend A&E in suicidal crisis.
This PhD will involve working collaboratively with both Cheshire Wirral Partnership NHS Trust and Mersey Care NHS Trust.
This project will run at the School of Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University.
The successful candidate is expected to have a graduate degree in Psychology (minimum 2:1), an ability to demonstrate a strong interest in Social/Forensic Psychology (ideally suicide and self-harm and/or decision-making processes) and advanced skills in qualitative and quantitative research methods and a willingness to contribute to the vibrant research community.
Interested candidates are asked to email their CV and Cover Letter (justifying their suitability by outlining their background, skills, experience, interests, etc.) to Dr Pooja Saini [email protected]
