Experiences of Black and Minority Ethnic stroke survivors


Project Description

Background to the proposed study

In January 2019, NHS England announced its Long-Term Plan, in which stroke has been named as a new national priority. Black and minority ethnic (BME) populations are more likely to have both an increased risk of stroke and experience more severe strokes (McFadden et al 2008). BME stroke survivors are more likely to have a higher level of unmet needs post-stroke.

Research topic

The topic is broad but it is suggested that the Doctorate focuses on access to healthcare post-stroke, assistive technologies for stroke or social activities/participation post-stroke.

Proposed methodology/methods

The research methods are likely to utilise a mixed methods approach. A member of the supervisory team will have lived experience of being a stroke survivor.

Applicant experience required

Applicants should have an undergraduate honours degree (or equivalent) at 2.1 or above and a Master’s degree in any health or social care discipline or related subject. Applicants with experience of working with people who have had a stroke are encouraged. Applicants should also have experience of working with and/or an interest in conducting research with service users.

Closing date and application details
