This post is an excellent opportunity for an experienced person with a background in either research or practice (e.g. domestic abuse, mental health) to join a multidisciplinary team in the Academic Unit of Primary Health Care within Bristol Medical School.
The REPROVIDE project, led by Professor Gene Feder and funded by a National Institute for Health Research programme grant, aims to test a group programme to help men who are concerned about their behaviour in relationships with women. At present not enough is known about the effectiveness of group programmes for perpetrators of domestic abuse and how much they can really help perpetrators or their partners, ex-partners, and children. The primary aim of our study therefore is to investigate the effectiveness of a group programme intervention for men on reducing abusive behaviour (we are focusing on men in the first instance as they are the majority group). The study design is a randomised controlled trial and we are recruiting participants in four sites located around the South West of England and South Wales. The new team member will be Bristol based.
What will you be doing?
You'll be involved in actively promoting the study with a range of professionals, recruiting male participants and, following up with participants already in the study by encouraging them to complete questionnaires. You'll be working in close collaboration with our abuse sector site partners in joint recruitment assessments. As we are mid-trial there are established protocols to follow and team members are always on hand to answer questions and concerns. The post holder will be collecting and organising data and doing simple analyses of datasets. If experienced in qualitative research, there will be interviews with participants and professionals to conduct and analyse as well as observational tasks. As appropriate to background and experience you will have the opportunity to lead or contribute to writing journal articles and travel to conferences.
There is some flexibility of role focus according to the skills, strengths, background and availability of the appointee. The post holder will have the opportunity to join a vibrant and passionate group of domestic abuse researchers and to network more widely with academic and clinical colleagues in the Centre for Primary Care and Population Health Sciences within Bristol Medical School.
