University of Warwick - Unit of Academic Primary Care, Health Sciences - Warwick Medical School

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Coventry

Hours: Full Time

This studentship will explore experiences of dying in community palliative care how understanding contexts, people or needs as ‘complex’ might be contributing to inequities of care. There will be opportunities to undertake observations of palliative care practice and conduct interviews with patients, carers and healthcare professionals. The aim of the studentship is to provide an understanding of complex needs within practices and experiences of community palliative care and use this to inform and improve understandings of dying.

To do this the student will work with Marie Curie, who as well as a provider of palliative services, are the leading charitable funder of research into end of life and palliative care in the UK. The collaboration with Marie Curie provides a unique opportunity to draw on their networks and connections to both support the student’s research project and maximise the impact of findings and recommendations. The student will undertake placements at the West Midlands hospice (Solihull) and with Marie Curie’s national Research and Policy Team (London). Working with the hospice will provide the student with practical experience of working in a research active multidisciplinary clinical environment. The opportunity to work with Marie Curie’s national Research and Policy teams will provide important learning and knowledge exchange opportunities that the student will be able to draw upon as they develop their policy recommendations. This will ensure the doctoral research generates significant impact across all of Marie Curie’s hospices, the hospice community more widely, and the NHS.

The studentship comes with a yearly tax-free stipend (rate for the academic year 2022-23 is £16,062) plus Home tuition fees, and £1,049 for expenses (e.g. laptop, travel, research costs). The successful applicant will enrol at the University of Warwick.

The successful applicant will be supervised by Dr John MacArtney and Professor Celia Lury. For any enquiries relating to this studentship please contact Dr John MacArtney: john.macartney@warwick.ac.uk
