Project Description

This PhD studentship is funded by a Warwick Collaborative Postgraduate Research Studentship (WCPRS) – an exciting collaboration between Warwick Medical School (WMS) and the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB). The research will address a high priority research gap identified by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR and the Core Outcome Set for Cardiac Arrest (COSCA) initiative.

The proposed three and a half-year research programme will focus on exploring the lived experience of survivors of cardiac arrest and developing a survivor-reported measure of health outcome, thus improving outcomes assessment in this population. The result will be of critical value to routine practice, research, and cardiac arrest registries where enhanced, patient-centered exploration of what really matters to survivors of cardiac arrest is required.

The successful candidate will join a vibrant and expanding research team at Warwick Medical School, University of Warwick within the multi-disciplinary Division of Health Sciences in Warwick Medical School. The successful candidate will be supervised by Dr Kirstie Haywood, Associate Professor in Patient Reported Outcomes and Professor Gavin Perkins, Director Warwick Clinical Trials Unit and Professor in Critical Care Medicine (UHB).

The successful candidate will be expected to start by the end of February 2020 and will be located at Warwick Medical School.

The applicant should have an interest in mixed methods research and the measurement of health outcomes. Some training (e.g. a Master’s degree) related to health or social science or a similar subject (e.g. nursing / physiotherapy / psychology) will be advantageous.
