About this Project:
Timely and accurate diagnosis of wound infections is pivotal in preventing their escalation into more serious health issues.
This interdisciplinary project will involve working collaboratively with the University’s Centre of Excellence for Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and Modelling (DAIM), and the Academic Vascular Surgical Unit (AVSU) to develop a valid, reliable, sensitive, specific and acceptable pathway to enable healthcare providers to remotely assess and manage patients with wounds, whilst evaluating the reduction in environmental impact achieved through the implementation of this approach.
This pathway will be instrumental in enabling healthcare providers to remotely and accurately identify patients at risk, ensuring they receive the prompt attention and follow-up appointments they require.
By undertaking this PhD, the candidate will play an instrumental role in shaping the future of wound care and healthcare sustainability.
