Project Description:

In collaboration with St. Catherine’s Hospice the PhD will explore impact of digital technologies to support both clinical staff and those who are affected by life-shortening conditions and their families. Conditions such as those living with and beyond cancer is forecasted to rise in England from 2.3m (2018) to 3.3m (2028). Thus this will but additional pressure on the services to support the communities and people affected. As a result of the COVID pandemic organisations have transformed their operations to utilise digital technologies to support care in the community. Digital technologies have the potential to improve efficiency of service whilst maintaining quality care.

We are specifically looking for applicants who will apply qualitative research methods in understanding current practises, processes and problems within the context of the project. From this, the overall vision is to apply co-design methodologies to have a meaningful impact within care provision. It is anticipated that a framework will be developed and the efficacy of this will be investigated.

The applicant will need to be compassionate, have empathy and strong communication skills. They will need to be able to travel around the community to carry out the primary research and obtain DBS clearance.
